In this week's Nature, researchers from the University of California, San Diego, describe the use of protease competition to engineer rapid and tunable genetic circuits across multiple spatial and temporal scales. They characterized coupling delay times that are more than an order of magnitude faster than standard transcription factor-based coupling methods and demonstrated tunability through manipulation of the linker between the protein and its degradation tag.
