Abstract:Over the last two decades, synthetic biology has emerged as a critical toolset for genetic engineering. Synthetic gene circuits have been engineered for a variety of uses from functional modules to increasing biosynthetic yield. After decades of showing their potential in labs, synthetic circuits are about to make the leap into complex environments. Recent advances have shown that a mechanistic, coarse-grained approach can give fundamental insight into how synthetic circuits interact with their host cells, though how this model can be applied in complex environments remains an open question. In this thesis, I will discuss how an extension of this coarse-grained model can describe circuit behavior in complex environments through mechanistic modeling of chloramphenicol and nutrient stress.
