Abstract

Recent progress in various related fields has engendered a new style of biology, named Synthetic Biology, which utilizes concepts from modern engineering to emulate specific cellular functions and their functional combinations. This paper presents an introduction to Synthetic Biology from various viewpoints. First, we survey the concepts and tools from Systems Science along with several issues on social impact. Then, we discuss the recent progress in Molecular Biology that supports Synthetic Biology.
