Synthetic biology is a branch of research that entails redesigning organisms to give them new capacities in order to remodel them for beneficial purposes. Researchers and industries all across the world are using synthetic biology to solve challenges in medical, manufacturing, and agriculture. Synthetic biology is a synthesis of discoveries in chemistry, biology, computer science, and engineering that allows us to go from concept to product faster, cheaper, and more precisely than ever before. It's a biology-based "toolkit" that employs abstraction, standardisation, and automated construction to alter how biological systems are built and broaden the range of products available.
Metabolic engineering is the application of genetic engineering to alter an organism's metabolism. It can entail improving existing metabolic pathways or introducing route components into bacteria, yeast, or plants, with the purpose of producing high-yields of specified metabolites for medicine or biotechnology. The "-omics" era has contributed a new set of tools and methodologies to Metabolic Engineering and Synthetic Biology that have had a substantial influence. Rather than functioning alone, these sectors rely on one another to thrive and fulfil their objectives.
