Synthetic biology is a new and exciting field of bioengineering whose goal is to
program biological systems in order to make them do useful things. These include,
for example, the synthesis of rare pharmaceutical compounds, or the selective
identification of cancer cells. By enabling such key applications, synthetic biology promises
to revolutionize the way we think about healthcare. We present a brief overview of the past
and present of the field, along with an outlook of what can be expected in the future.
