The topic synthetic Biology is comprises a rising field in the international community. We will introduce the historical development (f.e. in tethered membrane architectures) as well as the putative perspectives in medical/sensoric applications to be discussed in an interactive modus.

Previous knowledge expected

This lecture will base on fundamental understanding of molecular Biochemistry and basic Analytical methods. The background knowledge for this lecture is biochemistry - the organization and relation between the building blocks of life.

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

Since integration of biomolecules into devices is a hot topic in biosensor development, I will introduce the concepts and strategies and some fundamental physics behind concepts to build, characterize and apply synthetic Bioarchitectures. - as well as the advanced, synthetic chemistry, needed here to understand interactions and functionalization processes.
