Abstract / Description of output

The front cover artwork is provided by the group of Dr. Baojun Wang (The University of Edinburgh). The image shows an engineered bacterial cell containing a genetic amplifier circuit which transforms a weak input signal into a larger easily detectable output signal. The electronics symbols used to illustrate the genetic circuit highlight the programmability of the circuit components enabled by state-of-the-art synthetic biology tools.
