The last two decades have witnessed tremendous progress in synthetic biology. Despite the technological advances, the maturing field has yet to transition from fundamental study to translational practice. In this perspective article, I discuss my vision to enable this transition. With this vision, our next generation will solve global problems through synthetic biology.
Keywords: synthetic biology, global problems, future generation, Engineering Biology Research Consortium (EBRC), predictable engineering
