Synthetic Biology: The conclusion of the very beginning

Abstract:
"Biology is a technology for manufacturing," says Drew Endy. Engineered genes could remake mass-production and materials. Cells are proven nanotechnology with a history of creating large-scale output. Look around the room, anything manufactured or grown could very well be produced more efficiently in a cell. From impact resistant plastics to water proof fabrics or moisturizing cosmetics -- it could very well make the most financial sense to design an organism that cooks up what you want in almost any existing manufacturing industry.
