(iGEM) - The International Genetically Engineered Machine Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to education and competition, the advancement of synthetic biology, and the development of an open community and collaboration.
Tissue engineering is the use of a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physicochemical factors to improve or replace biological tissues.
- cultivating cells, growing things.
- biotechnology: make the micro-organisms your slave to grow things.
- bioprinter: copy the histology of cells (the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues of plants and animals) for e.g. printing organs.

A cell is a microscopic chemical factory.
The cell is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms. A cell is the smallest unit of life that can replicate independently, and cells are often called the “building blocks of life”. (wikipedia)
