Operational definition of Synthetic Biology
I support the interesting proposals from Dr. Sidarenka.
As per Dr. Hartung concern about the fitness of the word "unnatural", my feeling is that the term "artificial" gives us a most appropriate semantics, compared to "unnatural" or "synthetic".
We should keep in mind that the impressive field of Artificial Intelligence is doing very well using the term "artificial". In the near future, we will see artificial biological systems associated to artificial intelligence, anyway.
