Engineering principles

  • Discussion leader: Kevin


  • Synthetic biology - putting engineering into biology link
    • Review standardization, abstraction, heirarchy (see Assignment 2 notes)
    • Use of standards already in place
      • Standardization
      • Abstraction
      • Modularity
      • Predictability
      • Reliability
      • Uniformity
    • Important tools
      • Standardized cloning
      • De novo DNA synthesis
      • Providing chassis
    • Use of Devices
      • Oscillators
      • Switches
      • Logic gates
    • Problems of joining two modules together


  • Synthetic biology: new engineering rules for an emerging discipline link
    • Reiteration of biological devices
    • Assessment of overall system
      • Must consider that all things are happening in the cell
    • Types of Modules:
      • Cascades
      • Cell to cell signaling
    • Important notes
      • Natural evolution works!
      • Must examine overall population
