Minicells as a potential chassis for engineering lineage-agnostic organisms

bioRxiv - Background: Genomes encode for organisms and thus genome synthesis implies the possibility of organismal synthesis, including the synthesis of organisms without constraint to lineage. Current genome-scale engineering projects are focused on minimization, refactoring, or recoding within the context of existing natural lineages. Minicells arise naturally as anucleate cells that are devoid of...
