Synthetic biology is increasingly serving humanity for instance by accelerating the development of new medical treatments and by assisting in the combating of climate change. The Synbio Powerhouse ecosystem managed by VTT offers the key to success.
Synthetic biology combines the genius of nature with the excellence of engineering: the technology involves programming cells for a specific kind of production and reaction.
“The coronavirus pandemic is a typical example of a phenomenon that can be addressed through synthetic biology. Climate change, replacing fossil fuels with synthetic fuels and recycling are major global challenges with which synthetic biology can help,” says Co-Creation ManagerTuula Palménat VTT.
