Abstract: Synthetic biology is a field that has rapidly grown in the past decade. Many tools and standardized parts, such as BioBricks™, are now available that allow scientists to rapidly assemble gene circuits or multi-step pathways. However, one limitation is that the vast majority of parts have been designed and characterized with the goal of using Escherichia coli as the chassis. Yet, other species of bacteria are of interest due to native metabolic properties or tolerance to extreme conditions. Therefore it is nece…
