I'm on a mission to better understand the field of synthetic biology, which is a collection of tools applied to living things (microbes, human cells, wild animals) to attain useful outcomes (chemical production, curing of disease, protecting ecosystems). Essentially, it's a story about using biology as technology. It's about making genetic codes as easy to read, edit, and write as software code. It's about insulating supply chains and avoiding carbon dioxide emissions. It's about all of us -- the walking, talking biological machines taking instructions from our genes.
