Dear colleagues,

Therapeutic interventions have traditionally been developed for patients with established pathologies and overt clinical symptoms. Many diseases however, are not tractable in later stages and therefore therapies are needed that intervene earlier in the disease continuum.

Synthetic Biology Research and Applications: An Open Letter From John Glass

Dear colleagues,

Since the minimal cell idea was proposed by Max Delbruck and his Phage School colleagues in the 1930s, biologists have sought to build a cell that encodes only the minimum set of genes necessary for life. Such a minimal cell could be used to investigate the first principles of cellular life.

The balance of commensal bacteria is indicative of healthy skin, with dysbiosis having been linked to various skin diseases, such as psoriasis. A high relative abundance of Actinobacteria has been detected in healthy human skin but inflammatory lesions from psoriasis patients are characterised by an over-representation of Proteobacteria and an under-representation of Actinobacteria.
