Synthetic biology can be defined as a combinatorial approach where the basic elements, governing the operational functionality of a living cell, are placed together to generate life forms with novel characteristics and properties. One of the most exciting aspects of synthetic biology is the diversity of applications it may enable. New applications may be found in energy, medicine, environment and materials. In this paper, we first focus on the definition of synthetic biology as well as the potential applications and key challenges, then the role of synthetic biology in producing biofuels are discussed. Finally, several key points to achieve sustainable development are summarized.
