Decoding Synthetic Biology

In this video segment from KQED’s QUEST, learn about how synthetic biologists design and fabricate genes from scratch and use these genes to build new functions into living organisms. Follow researchers Drew Endy and Chris Voight as they explain how this new technology improves upon traditional genetic engineering tools and gives scientists the opportunity to build genes that can be used to reprogram living organisms.
