Held at the Norris University Center on March 24-25, the Engineering Biology Research Consortium brought together nearly 170 faculty, researchers, and students from universities across the country to discuss current challenges and opportunities in synthetic biology.
Synthetic biology: Sensing with modular receptors
Matthew Brenner, Jang Hwan Cho and Wilson W Wong
Sensing and responding to diverse extracellular signals is a crucial aspect of cellular decision-making that is currently lacking in the synthetic biology toolkit. The development of modular receptor platforms allows for the rewiring of cellular input-output relationships.
