Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Genetic engineering is revealing biosynthetic pathways for the synthesis of small molecules and avenues toward cheaper syntheses. Projects aiming to direct the biosynthesis of small molecules may seek to make new compounds, make natural compounds in unnatural organisms, or alter the metabolic flux through a particular biosynthetic pathway. This Perspective presents three examples that illustrate the state of directed biosynthesis and highlight its future prospects.
