• Machine Learning Takes on Synthetic Biology: Algorithms Can Bioengineer Cells for You

    1 month ago - By News Center

    Tijana Radivojevic and Hector Garcia Martin working on mechanical and statistical modeling, data visualizations, and metabolic maps at the Agile BioFoundry last year.
    If you've eaten vegan burgers that taste like meat or used synthetic collagen in your beauty routine - both products that are “grown” in the lab - then you've benefited from synthetic biology. It's a field rife with potential, as it allows scientists to design biological systems to specification, such as engineering a microbe to produce a cancer-fighting agent. Yet conventional methods of bioengineering are slow and...
