Rose oil made from yeast? Cheese made using bacteria from the human body? Lab scientists are now merging engineering and biology to create living bacteria and other life forms for commercial purposes. Learning from nature, organism engineers develop products that aim to replace existing technology with new biology. Christina Agapakis, Harvard-trained creative director at Gingko Bioworks, discusses the journey to create engineered living cells and how synthetic biology is likely to shape communities, cultures, and the future.
