Finding sustainable approaches in using natural resources without further degrading it is among the top priorities of researchers across the globe. On the other hand, there are growing bioremediation efforts in reverting the detrimental effects of environmental contamination caused by humans. Mainstream approaches and efforts have so far been focused on using chemicals or non-natural agents that can themselves harm the environment and are costly. Now, with the help of novel cell-free or cell-based solutions offered by synthetic biology, individual species of microorganisms, microbial ecosystems comprised of multi-species communities or metabolic parts of them are engineered to better utilize, remediate and conserve our natural resources, and even produce useful compounds from waste.
Synthetic biology is helping solve worldwide efforts in preserving the environment and rescuing contaminated natural resources through engineering genetic circuits, metabolic pathways and enzymes in microorganisms to:
Employing synthetic biology strategies in bioremediation and environmental conservation is:
After establishing a clear goal and developing a design strategy, the following services can facilitate the development of synthetic biology-based solutions for environmental conservation:
