Rosalind Franklin’s use of X-ray diffraction images led to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA in 1953. Her work was published alongside, but not recognized as a contributing factor to, Francis Crick’s and James Watson’s model of the structure of DNA. BIO’s 2015 Rosalind Franklin Award, sponsored by the Rosalind Franklin Society, is a way to honor Rosalind Franklin’s discoveries by awarding it to a woman who exemplifies her leadership and pioneering Read More >

Risks and Benefits from Synbio Processes

Molecules

At this Wednesday morning BIO World Congress session, Thomas Ishoey, VP at Synthetic Genomics gave an overview of applying synthetic biology towards the development of proprietary synthetic routes, and key genes/pathways for strain development of enzymes and renewable chemicals. The benefits include, creating proprietary pathways and discovery and engineering of new to the world molecules, their activities and allowing scalable, robust routes, and cost parity to incumbent technologies. Some challenges mentioned were based on aerobic metabolism, low biomass Read More >
