Synthetic biology is a young and interdisciplinary field of research in the life sciences. It is already revolutionising a number of fields using tools and concepts from physics, engineering and computer science to build new biological systems.
Engineering Biology is particularly focused on the application of engineering science and practice to the design of biological devices and systems for a wide range of fields and applications. A key aspect is systematic design using the engineering principles of modularity, standardisation and characterisation. Papers will be considered from all stages of the design cycle, from the development of platform technology and techniques, to industrial and scaling processes, and new technical standards.A list of the types of articles considered for publication in Engineering Biology is available here.
Topics suitable for Engineering Biology include (but are not necessarily limited to):
Engineering biology themes
