Researchers develop gene circuit design strategy to advance synthetic biology

Scientists and engineers have developed synthetic gene circuits that program the functionality, performance, and behavior of living cells. These gene circuits hold great promise in medical and biotechnological applications, but to date, most circuits are constructed through a manner, which relies on a designer's intuition and is often inefficient. Researchers have addressed the challenge by constructing an integrated modeling framework for quantitatively describing and predicting gene circuit behaviors.
