Synthetic biologists extend functional life of cancer fighting circuitry in microbes

Bioengineers have developed a method to significantly extend the life of gene circuits used to instruct microbes to do things like produce and deliver drugs, break down chemicals and sense the environment. Most circuits synthetic biologists insert into microbes break or vanish after a certain period of time — typically days to weeks — because of various mutations. Researchers demonstrated they can keep genetic circuits going much longer.
