Schöne neue Biologie? Synthetisch-biologische Ansätze zur CO2 -Umwandlung


Over billions of years nature has evolved efficient biological systems.
Synthetic biology aims at developing human-made mimics of these
systems that provide alternative, more efficient solutions to natural
processes, or perform tasks not (yet) found in natural systems. Here
we discuss how synthetic biology can be used to design and realize
novel enzymes and metabolic networks for the capture and conversion
of carbon dioxide. We further discuss the strategies and challenges for
transplanting these new
CO2-fixing processes into natural and artificial
