Abstract

The elaborate spatial organization of cells enhances, restricts, and regulates protein-protein interactions. However, the biological significance of this organization has been difficult to study without ways of directly perturbing it. We highlight synthetic biology tools for engineering novel cellular organization, describing how they have been, and can be, used to advance cell biology.
