(SynBio) is a multidisciplinary area of research that seeks to create new biological parts, devices, and systems, or to redesign systems that are already found in nature. It is a branch of science that encompasses a broad range of methodologies from various disciplines, such as biotechnology, genetic engineering, molecular biology, molecular engineering, systems biology, membrane science, biophysics, chemical and biological engineering, electrical and computer engineering, control engineering and evolutionary biology. Due to more powerful genetic engineering
capabilities and decreased DNA synthesis and sequencing costs, the field of synthetic biology
is rapidly growing. In 2016, more than 350 companies across 40 countries were actively engaged in synthetic biology
applications; all these companies had an estimated net worth of $3.9 billion in the global market.
