  1. 1. Trabajo hecho por Álvaro ,José Javier Sanabria, Kevin y Nacha
  2. 2. Álvaro  They are now starting to create new life. Perhaps this is the start of an era in which new biological species are created based on a digital design  This new research field, which goes by the name of synthetic biology, has been gaining ground over the past years. It is a mixture of molecular biology, chemistry, genetic engineering, biotechnology, engineering and computer science. Boiled down, the idea is to look at biology through engineer’s eyes and to analyze life forms and life processes as functional units taken from biosystems.
  3. 3. José Javier Sanabria  Visions of how synthetic organisms might be used range from the creation of oil-free fuels and chemical-free cancer therapies, to the establishment of whole new landscapes. But scientists in the field are currently most concerned with basic research, and it is still unclear whether such plans will ever become reality.
  4. 4. Kevin  Scientists have been motivated by the falling costs of decoding and synthesizing gene sections, and the realization that although genome sequencing generates huge quantities of genetic data, it doesn’t offer much insight into the question of how genetic information can be translated into “life,” and which inter-cellular actions and interactions play which role in the process.
  5. 5. Nacha  Among the projects the team is involved in is the development of new micro-organisms for the synthesis of high-quality chemicals for industrial use. The most popular result from Panke’s institute is the award-winning “e-lemming,” a bacterium whose movements can be remote controlled by light.
