Synthetic Cells to Advance Understanding of Biological Systems and Applications in Biotechnology

 

 

All living cells arise from pre-existing cells by division. Bottom-up synthetic biology aims to recreate living cells through construction, creating so-called synthetic cells. Recent advances in the controlled bottom-up assembly of synthetic cells have led to increasingly complex entities that we can use to learn about the physics of living systems or to exploit their functionality in engineering contexts. Along these lines, I will discuss three research topics: the cell-free expression and sorting of membrane proteins [1,2], force generation and remodeling of a tissue mimetic [3], and the ionic transport in nanofluidic lipid membrane channels.
