How Synthetic Biology Leads to Renewable Energy

Synthetic Biology aims to engineer the nature organisms that the system can perform new fuction or construct new material. Biofuel refers to solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion. Biofuel has great potential to replace petroleum, gasoline, and diesel, and is an important factor in the development and utilization of renewable energy. Whether derived directly from plants, or indirectly from agricultural, commercial, domestic, and/or industrial waste, biofuels are a major source of green, renewable energy that will only become more useful and more affordable as time goes on.

Microbial fermentation is one of the most effective ways to produce biological energy. Glucose is a highly cost-effective raw material often used in this production process. The process of designing, constructing, and optimizing microbial synthesis is defined as metabolic engineering. More and more gene regulations need to be considered while designing the metabolic pathway, especially as metabolic engineering continues to evolve and expand to broader and more advanced fields – such as synthetic biology. Synthetic biology deals with the systematic design and the formation of new biological components, such as enzymes, genetic circuits, metabolic pathways, and cells.

Synthetic biology has developed rapidly over the past ten years. A large number of highly efficient and practical synthetic biology tools have been developed and applied to biofuel development. Through the design, control, and optimization of microbial synthesis processes at the enzymatic, metabolic pathway, and genomic levels, new biofuels and the optimization of yield of already available biofuels could be right around the corner.

Synbio Technologies has created the first integrated GPS (Genotype, Phenotype, and Synotype) system designed for quick and easy translation or reverse translation between Genotype and Phenotype by using our proprietary Synotype platform. We have created comprehensive Synotype platforms for biological researchers that are dedicated to integrating cutting-edge synthetic biology techniques and bioinformatics tools into an advanced biological innovation platform. Synbio Technologies’s scientific capabilities encompass areas such as DNA engineering, DNA synthesis, genome synthesis, pathway synthesis, synthetic biology, pharmacogenomics, microbiology, translational biology and the applications of synthetic biology.
