Biologists and bioengineers alike must understand the most basic unit of life — the cell. However, the complexity of various intracellular processes presents a challenge for researchers who try to discern biological processes and the engineers who want to make specific modifications to cells. Cell-free systems reduce these complex interactions by allowing researchers to study the reactions in the cell outside of the cell boundary.
