"Applications of Synthetic Genomics to Animal Health" Yeast has long served as a host for exogenous DNA. Recent progress in synthetic biology allow the efficient engineering of microbial genomes in yeast that can then be rescued to yield modified bacteria/viruses. Recent examples show that the ability to quickly synthesize, assemble, and/or modify viral and bacteria genomes can help respond to emerging pathogens.
