Adventures in Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology explained by comic

Prof. Drew Endy, Isadora Deese & The MIT Synthetic Biology Working Group have just published in Nature a comic introduction to synthetic biology (requires Flash). There’s a text version here with no graphics.

Sadly the full article, Foundations for engineering biology, requires subscription or payment (science is still captive at Nature).

But a subscription is not required to enjoy the story of how this comic came to be. From that story we learned we need to order a copy of Larry Gonick’s The Cartoon Guide to Genetics.
