Abstract

The emerging field of synthetic biology — with the potential for engineering life from scratch — has inherited the laws and regulations of its biotechnology precursor. Yet, synthetic biology allows scientists to do entirely new things. This Article considers the resulting legal and ethical issues, after surveying the technological capabilities developed by the field of synthetic biology.

Keywords: synthetic biology, bioethics, health law
