SynCTI’s Research Foci

Honey Comb

SynCTI aims to develop foundational science and technology that will enhance our capacity to engineer biological systems with complexity and functions to serve a myriad of biotechnological applications in areas of healthcare, energy and the environment. Our strategic research thrusts will provide tools and solutions to confront current bottlenecks in synthetic biology with key emphasis on the development of (i) chassis and vectors, (ii) parts and devices and (iii) testbeds.

Our team of devoted researchers is divided into closely integrated clusters focusing on six areas of research, namely, microbial bio-manufacturing, therapeutic cells, environment remediation, mammalian bio-production, cell-free and whole-cell biosensors, and synthetic genomics. Research development in SynCTI is accelerated by cutting edge technologies and resources available at the NUS Synthetic Biology Foundry.
