MTS45 - James Collins - Engineering Life: The Past and Future of Synthetic Biology

In this podcast, I talk to James Collins, an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and a professor at Boston University.

Ten years ago Collins helped launch a new kind of science called synthetic biology. I talked to Collins about the achievements of synthetic biology over the past decade, such as engineering E. coli that can count, and about the future of synthetic biology--from using bacteria to make fuel to reprogramming the bacteria in our guts to improve our health.
