Engineering Biology

New Content ItemGuest Editors: James Collins, Sophien Kamoun, Nicola Patron, Pamela Silver, James Wells

The application of engineering principles to biological processes has enabled the construction of new, rationally designed, biological components and systems, as well as the adaptation of natural ones for diverse purposes. For this series, BMC Biology have invited Reviews, Opinions and Q&As from leaders in the fields, covering the recent advances in the design and manipulation of biological systems, as well as new tools and technologies inspired by biology.

We are inviting the submission of Research, Methodology, and Registered Report manuscripts providing outstanding contributions on this topic, and including, but not limited to, the following fields:

  • Protein Design 
  • Synthetic Biology 
  • Metabolic Engineering 
  • Tissue Engineering 
  • Biosynthesis 
  • Gene Therapy 
  • Genome Editing
  • Biomaterials
  • Drug Development
  • Organoids

To be included in the series launch, please submit your manuscript by November 15th 2018. For enquiries, contact
