Communicating artificial cells

Current Opinion in Chemical Biology

Abstract

Intercellular chemical communication is commonly exploited for the engineering of living cells but has been largely ignored by efforts to build artificial cells. Since communication is a fundamental feature of life, the construction of artificial cells capable of chemical communication will likely lead to a deeper understanding of biology and allow for the development of life-like technologies. Herein we highlight recent progress towards the construction of artificial systems that are capable of chemically communicating with natural living cells. Artificial systems that exploit both biological and abiological material for function are discussed.

Biofilms

Biofilms are adherent bacterial communities embedded in a polymer matrix and can cause persistent human infections that are highly resistant to antibiotics. Discover the latest research on Biofilms here.

CRISPR for Genome Editing

Genome editing technologies enable the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). Here is the latest research on the use of CRISPR-Cas system in gene editing.
