The EBICS mission is to create a new scientific discipline for building living, multi-cellular machines that solve real world problems in health, security, and the environment.
EBICS has taken two fundamental approaches to developing biological machines.
Using a classic engineering approach, we define the specifications for cellular machines with the desired capabilities, and develop the necessary parts (cells and cell clusters) and machine assembly pathways to construct such a machine. In parallel, we are using a systems biology approach to understand the emergent properties of cells and cell clusters to harness those properties to evolve interacting cell clusters that function within a biological machine with specific capabilities.
