The borders between science disciplines are becoming increasingly blurred. In particular, biology is synergizing strongly with other disciplines, and creating new ones, ranging from molecular biology and biophysics to computer-aided drug design, computational biology and biomedical engineering. Synthetic biology is a field conceptualized by engineers, who wanted to design, edit and synthesize living cells like building machines – the only difference is that the components are biological. These developments are supported by the availability of super-computers and high-speed research and education networks like the Indian National Knowledge Network. Also, the expected timeline to translate basic research into a viable product is dramatically reducing, as exemplified by the recent COVID-19 experience © 2022, Current Science.
