Synthetic Biology at Work
The expression “synthetic biology” appeared for the first time in a couple of publications by the French biologist Stephane Leduc, respectively “Théorie physico-chimique de la vie et générations spontanées”, published in 1910, and “La Biologie Synthétique”, published 2 years later. Leduc attributed the afore-mentioned expression to researches into the synthesis of life from inanimate matter, by emphatically asking why the synthesis of a cell is considered less admissible than that of a molecule. Such statements did not find interest and approval among his contemporary colleagues.
