Student Research
Synthetic & Systems Biology

Synthetic biology is an interdisciplinary research area encompassing biology, chemistry and engineering disciplines. Synthetic biology processes and methods are used in developing non-natural biological entities, new drugs, and new diagnostics.

Systems biology is the integrated study of the behavior of living systems and their interactions with the environment or other living systems, using a combination of experimental and mathematical methods. This highly-interdisciplinary field is at the interface of ‘-omics’, mathematical modeling, and computer science.
