Human Practice

The emerging field of synthetic biology brings an engineering approach to biology. Individual parts can be readily synthesized and combined in different biological arrangements to make useful products such as biopharmaceuticals and biofuels. Synthetic biology spans from advanced genetic engineering to the construction of new biological parts, devices and systems .

Due to the fact that synthetic biology constitutes both a relatively new and a rapidly growing field,it may raise concerns related to safety and ethical issues. Apart from this,there are persons who are not aware of what synthetic biology is. Those facts make human practice an important aspect of synthetic biology.

In the frame of our our project, we decided to focus on the aforementioned approaches related to the human practice aspect of synthtic biology.
