Synthetic biology with RNA

The field of synthetic biology seeks to re-engineer and re-build biological systems, to understand fundimental biological processes and to create new technologies. Integral to these goals is the creation of molecules with new activities and interactions. The remarkable flexibility of RNA, as an information carrier, catalyst, and scaffold, has enabled a wide variety of applications in synthetic biology in the last decade and positions RNA as a key player in future synthetic biology endeavors.
