Introduction to Genetic Circuit Engineering

Synthetic biology can be used to customize biomedicine and biotechnology applications by rewiring genetic networks of natural biological cells. It aims to engineer and redesign biological systems. Inspired by the design of electronic logic circuits, synthetic biology enables the synthesis of genetic logic circuits and cell reprogramming.

Genetic circuit engineering refers to the synthesis of unnatural DNA segments that encode RNA molecules or proteins to control each other’s levels. Distinguished from top-down genomic engineering, genetic circuit engineering is a bottom-up approach. The main purpose of genetic circuit engineering is to understand how natural systems are reconstructed in the laboratory. In recent years, genetic engineering has progressed that it is able to construct novel genetic circuits with different functions and activation mechanisms. The achievements in genetic circuit engineering are remarkable.

Service Offering

CD Biosynsis provides one-stop services of genetic circuit engineering to help our customers bring their innovative ideas to reality.

Genetic Circuit Design

Genetic circuits can perform logical functions mimicking those observed in electronic circuits and exhibit control over the flow of information in biological systems. With advanced computer-aided design and design automation technologies, we provide comprehensive services covering the design of input, operation and output modules, biological logic gates, and genetic oscillators.

Engineering of Gene Switches

As the basic component of genetic circuits, synthetic gene switches can intervene and control gene expression at different levels. We provide professional services for the engineering of both transcriptional and posttranscriptional gene switches.

Engineering of Logic Gates

Logic gates play an essential role in constructing genetic circuits to customize cell signaling in synthetic biology. Our scientists are capable of engineering modular and orthogonal genetic logic gates and building logic gates with digital-like switching behavior.

Engineering of Genetic Oscillators

Synthetic gene oscillators are important engineered regulatory motifs in genetic circuits. We can use cell-free systems to engineer genetic oscillators and characterize complex dynamic behaviors.

CD Biosynsis offers a variety of cutting-edge techniques to tailor genetic circuit engineering services for individual customer specifications. We are available for on-demand customer assistance via email or phone to help you with any problems or concerns you may have.
