Synthetic biology is a multidisciplinary field that integrates molecular biology, genetics, systems biology, biotechnology, and biophysical approaches among many others. With the recent advances in bottom-up DNA assembly methods to stitch together and characterize adaptable functioning synthetic biological circuits, this field is becoming integral across biomedical research. Graduate students within the CPSB program are exposed to a variety of aspects of synthetic biology that aid them in designing and engineering biological systems useful in research areas as versatile as signal transduction, virology, metabolism, medicinal chemistry, structural biology, human disease modeling, and many others.
