Synthetic biology is a very young interdisciplinary area of scientific research between the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, engineering, nanotechnology, information technology, biotechnology. It will create artificial - not occurring in nature - biological systems. Intention is the development of artificial biological systems, which do not occur in nature.

Chemistry plays an important role in the emerging field of synthetic biology, providing the technologies that enable much of the research. In particular, chemical synthetic biology is concerned with the synthesis of new biological macromolecular structures (proteins and nucleic acids) and minimal life forms (semi-synthetic minimal cells) not found in nature, and - in contrast to other aspects of synthetic biology - without the use of genetic manipulation.
Chemical Synthetic Biology is an essential guide to this fascinating new field, and will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers and students working in synthetic chemistry, synthetic and molecular biology, bioengineering, systems biology, computational genomics and bioinformatics.
