Introduction to Cell-Free Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology integrates different engineering disciplines. Through the engineering and mastery of biological parts, novel biological systems can be created for a wide range of applications. In recent years, the field of synthetic biology has grown exponentially and is poised to transform biotechnology and medicine. Synthetic biology is encountering more and more challenges along with its increasing applications, such as the delivery of genetic material into cells and the optimization of genetic circuits. Some of the innate characteristics of cell-free systems make them compelling platforms that can be used to simplify and avoid many of the pitfalls of synthetic biology.

The cell-free system bypasses the cell wall, removes genetic regulation, and enables direct access inside the cell. It offers the flexibility to explore beyond the confines of living cells by recapitulating gene expression systems in vitro and allows networking of natural and synthetic systems. Cell-free systems provide simpler and faster engineering solutions as well as a versatile test-bed. The unprecedented level of control and freedom of design in an open environment, compared to cell-based approaches, has stimulated the rapid development of engineering foundations for cell-free systems in recent years. Numerous highly active cell-free platforms have now been successfully developed and hold promise to be a powerful tool for synthetic biology in years to come. Cell-free synthetic biology is emerging as a powerful and flexible enabling approach aimed to understand, harness, and expand the capabilities of natural biological systems without using intact cells. It has reached broad research communities both in academia and industry.
