Synthetic Biology (also known as Synbio, Synthetic Genomics, Constructive Biology or Systems Biology) - the design and construction of new biological parts, devices and systems that do not exist in the natural world and also the redesign of existing biological systems to perform specific tasks. Advances in nanoscale technologies - manipulation of matter at the level of atoms and molecules - are contributing to advances in synthetic biology.

Transgenics, the kind of engineering you find in genetically modified tomatoes and corn, is old news. As recombinant DNA splicing-techniques turn 30 years old, a new generation of extreme biotech enthusiasts have moved to the next frontier in the manipulation of life: building it from scratch. They call it synthetic biology.
