Discover the great applications of Synthetic Biology that are currently being developed or already on the market.

Health & Medicine

The Health and Medicine Sector is now about to learn the fundamentals of live be truly understanding the genetic code that causes diseases or malfunctions. Also, the constantly falling prices of DNA reading will enable a personalized medicine where a doctor - with the support of big data - will be able to tailor the medical procurement by e.g. predict if a certain drug will cause the desired response.

New Markets

Synthetic Biology will not only disrupt existing markets but create plenty of completely new markets. Being able to recombine modules from the programming language of life, we will for sure come up with new use cases that didn't exist yet. Just think of the new markets that computers and the internet have brought us.


Industry & Chemicals

Industrial use of Synthetic Biology will produce new means for synthesizing existing or completely new chemicals. One day, there might be no more need for huge chemical facilities, instead bio reactors containing tailor made synthetic cells will be capable of producing the end product in one step.

Food & Agriculture

The Food and Agriculture market has already benefiting from Biotech inventions over the last 30 years. Today, 85% of all crops on the fields are already genetically optimized. However, the standardization and modularization of Synthetic Biology will allow far more advances in this market than ever before.

I like to share the great things I discover daily while researching and working in the field of Synthetic Biology.

When I talk to people about it, they often refer to Science Fiction. However, when I send them links to this wiki and they read through those pages, they start understanding that this is real and it's happening right now.
