Synthetic gene networks have evolved from simple proof-of-concept circuits to complex therapy-oriented networks over the past 15 years. This advancement has greatly facilitated the expansion of the emerging field of synthetic biology. In this review, we highlight the main applications of synthetic gene networks in understanding biological design principles, developing biosensors for diagnosis, producing industrial and biomedical compounds, and treating human diseases. Finally, we outline current challenges and future prospects of synthetic gene networks for advancing practical applications.
