First single-unit synthetic ribosome opens the door to next-generation synthetic biology

Researchers from the University of Illinois, Chicago and Northwestern University have engineered the first designer ribosome with artificially tethered subunits, dubbed Ribo-T. The synthetic ribosome works nearly as well as its original cellular counterpart and may not only be used for exploring hitherto poorly understood functions of the ribosome, but could eventually have applications in next-generation synthetic biology.
