Today, a nascent class of biodesigners are exploring new uses for biotech. The Biodesign Challenge blog will focus on them and their world. We’ll explore new applications of biotechnology, covering new materials, new products, and innovative new ways of using living things. We’ll expose the controversies and dangers surrounding many of these potential applications. And in the process, we’ll meet some of the world’s most creative people, who are working at the junction of design, biology, and engineering.
