Chemistry plays a very important role in the emerging field of synthetic biology. In particular, chemical synthetic biology is concerned with the synthesis of chemical structures, such as proteins, that do not exist in nature. With contributions from leading international experts, Chemical Synthetic Biology shows how chemistry underpins synthetic biology. The book is an essential guide to this fascinating new field, and will find a place on the bookshelves of researchers and students working in synthetic chemistry, synthetic and molecular biology, bioengineering, systems biology, computational genomics, and bioinformatics.

About The Author
Professor Dr Pier Luigi LuisiProfessor Luisi is an acknowledged expert in the field of synthetic biology and supramolecular chemistry, with over 400 scientific papers to his name. He is the author of seven books, including "The Emergence of Life. From Chemical Origins to Synthetic Biology" (CUP, 2006). He is now based at Univ. Roma 3, Italy where his research interests are the never-born proteins, and the construction of vesicle-based bioreactors that simulate the main functions of biological cells.
