Synthetic Life Created by Synthetic Genomics

In an earlier article, we discussed the exciting potential of synthetic biology, a market that according to the UK government will grow from $1.8 billion in 2011 to $11.8 billion by 2016. One pioneer in the field of synthetic biology is American biologist and entrepreneur, Craig Venter. In 2010, Mr. Venter created a self-replicating single-cell organism which was […]

Selecta Nanoparticles Help You to Stop Smoking

In previous articles we discussed companies such as Bind Therapeutics and pSivida that are using nanotechnology to improve the effectiveness of drug delivery. Drug delivery is just one of many applications nanotechnology has in the area of biosciences. Selecta Biosciences is a biopharmaceutical company developing the first generation of nanoparticle immunotherapy drugs for the treatment and prevention of human […]
