Living Systems Engineering

A DNA strand next to a gear

Living systems engineering applies the principles and methods of engineering down to the building blocks of life. The core of this emerging field is growing biological molecules and cells in the confinements of a laboratory. Products made by this technology can include proteins, vaccines, enzymes, or specialized cells (including artificial cells).
