This tutorial article gives an overview of the theory and design tools for the real-time control of living cells. The theoretical, computational, and experimental tools and technologies utilized for achieving such control make up a new and exciting area of study at the interface between control theory and synthetic biology, to which we refer as Cybergenetics. This article (along with ) accompany a tutorial session on Cybergenetics, that is intended to introduce control scientists and engineers to the different ways living cells can be controlled, and to the many opportunities for future developments-both theoretical and practical--that such control brings about.
