Synthetic Biology: Approaches and Applications of Engineered Biology
Synthetic biology is expected to change how we understand and engineer biological systems. Lying at the intersection of molecular biology, physics, and engineering, the applications of this exploding field will both draw from and add to many existing disciplines. In this perspective, the recent advances in synthetic biology towards the design of complex, artificial biological systems are discussed.

Stochastic perturbation theory and its application to complex biological networks -- a quantification of systematic features of biological networks Li, Yao (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-07-08)The primary objective of this thesis is to make a quantitative study of complex biological networks. Our fundamental motivation is to obtain the statistical dependency between modules by injecting external noise. To ...
Patz, Timothy Matthew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-07-14)I have explored the use of the matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE) and MAPLE direct write (MDW) to create thin films of biological materials. MAPLE is a novel physical vapor deposition technique used to deposit ...
Influence of Sensory Feedback on Rhythmic Movement: A Computational Study of Resonance Tuning in Biological Systems Williams, Carrie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-11-20)Rhythmic movementssuch as swimming, flying, and walkingare ubiquitous in nature. Intrinsically active neural networks called central pattern generators (CPGs) provide the feedforward signals to actuate these movements, ...
