Abstract

Cell-free synthetic biology has arisen as a new research area to accelerate bioengineering and expand the properties of natural biological systems. Cell-free synthetic biology is now used for applied and fundamental applications including chemical engineering, nanotechnologies, medicine, novel biochemistries, synthetic life, gene circuit prototyping. The goal of this session is to highlight the recent advances made in cell-free synthetic biology across many different scales and areas.
