Successful development of new process synthetic biology will realize industrialization

according to the daily scientific shortcut, British scientists have developed a new method under the action of sufficiently large alternating stress, which can shorten the production time of new components in the microbial factory from the original two days to six hours. Researchers believe that this is a step closer to the new industrial revolution, which can mass produce components for biological factories, and then promote the practical application of synthetic biology, including providing better drug delivery methods for patients, improving the output of mining minerals from deep underground, and promoting biofuel production

the research team led by Professor Paul Fremont, CO director of the center for synthetic biology and innovation of Imperial College of technology, published a paper in the journal nucleic acid research on February 1, pointing out that before the industrial revolution, most products were made by hand, so the production efficiency was low, the cost was expensive and the output was limited. At present, the field of synthetic biology is also in a similar critical period. It takes a long time to test and make every component from zero. The new method can greatly speed up the production and testing of biological components

scientists use DNA to make components and inject them into carrier cells to build biological factories. However, one of the main obstacles encountered in the development of synthetic biology is the lack of components to build various new biological factories. The existing methods of component manufacturing are quite time-consuming. Scientists must recombine DNA in cells and observe whether it works properly. Fremont team 2. The method designed when replacing the indenter or anvil does not require DNA recombination. It can use ready-made components to establish a large new laboratory and build a more advanced biological factory based on it

James Chappelle of the center said: "Synthetic biology celebrates the official opening of its composite resin research and development and technical service center. One of the main goals is to find a new process that can realize industrialization and mass produce various biological factories, which will help release the potential of synthetic biology and better benefit the society. The quick method of developing new components we provide is a step closer to this goal."

the recombinant DNA will encode a kind of information, which will be transmitted to the cell's production plant, namely ribosome, via messenger RNA (mRNA). Ribosomes translate genetic information into instructions that direct cells to function. For the first time, researchers have confirmed that this method can also be successful in vitro

the advantage of recombinant DNA in vitro is that scientists can develop a cell like environment and test a variety of recombinant DNA at the same time, so as to speed up the production process of components. The next stage of research is to increase the type and design of components required by this method. In addition, scientists also intend to develop a method to use robots to automate the whole process

Professor Richard ketney, another co director of the center for synthetic biology and innovation at Imperial College, pointed out that the British government believes that synthetic biology has the potential to create new industries and employment opportunities. The center is implementing a research plan to develop applied technologies for multiple industrial sectors, and the above research results are only part of the plan
