The CSO describes the importance of leveraging functional genomics for synthetic promoter design

The scope of this chapter is to examine how advances in the field of Bioinformatics can be applied in the development of improved therapeutic strategies. In particular, we focus on how algorithms designed to unravel complex gene regulatory networks can then be used in the design of synthetic gene promoters that can be subsequently incorporated in novel gene transfer vectors to promote safer and more efficient expression of therapeutic genes for the treatment of various pathological conditions.

The CSO describes how synthetic biology approaches can be used to improve gene expression

Synthetic Biology is a relatively new discipline within the Biotech industry, having leapt onto the scene over a decade ago, largely emerging to address specific needs arising in the Industrial Biotechnology sector. There have been many definitions put forward over the years, but it is broadly accepted as being the application of engineering principles to improve and exploit biological processes for commercial gain. Consequently, a number of small start-ups predominate in the field and there is a strong entrepreneurial spirit amongst synthetic biologists, akin to that seen in the IT sector, where parallels are often drawn. The vision is that all biological parts can be standardised and taken “off-the-shelf” to build complex biological systems that can be used to improve upon various industrial or, more recently, biomedical processes.
