Abstract

Cover illustration:

Synthetic Biology. This special issue, edited by Alfonso Jaramillo and Jean-Loup Foulon, highlights articles from the International conference on Synthetic Biology (December 2010) organized by the Genopole and iSSB. The cover image depicts a tentative synthetic leaf in half revealing its genetic circuitry. A zoom box details the leaf's interior circuits, which are made up of three multiplexed light sensors regulating gene expression controlled by red, green and blue light. The image (provided by Daniel Camsund) illustrates the application of light sensors reported in this issue (http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/biot.201100091).
