Temporary Expert: Synthetic Biology Update

Week three’s in class exercise helped me to lay out all of my thoughts around synthetic biology and what area I want to explore more deeply for the temporary expert project. The element of synthetic biology that I want to explore in my temporary expert project is the role that biosensors have in current synthetic biology and to explore a speculative design approach to what future these sensors could have for people and the environment.
