Synthetic Biology: Microbiome Engineering


Crook, N., North Carolina State University


Young, E., Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Synthetic biology is increasingly being applied to develop microbes which function outside of the well-controlled bioreactor context, in habitats including the human gut, plant root, and wastewater treatment plant. At the same time, the efficiency and robustness of natural microbial communities has inspired the rational design of multispecies consortia to achieve biotechnological goals. This session features talks that highlight advances in engineering microbes for function outside of the bioreactor, and to assemble multispecies consortia in a rational manner.
