Below is a short description of the Synthetic Biology department cluster.

Areas of interest include synthetic biology, a field of science that involves redesigning organisms for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities. Applications to energy, biomaterials synthesis and medicine are explored. Other synergistic areas include systems biology and bioprocessing. The focus area in synthetic biology draws from the expertise in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Department of Biology, the RSMAS Department in Biology and Ecosystems, and the Science Departments of the Miller School of Medicine (MSOM). The Frost Institute has a significant connectivity to this cluster.
