Schematic representation of synthetic sRNAs that control in trans the expression of target genes at the post-transcriptional level. The synthetic sRNA strategy offers possibilities for the comprehensive evaluation of the effects of genetic modifications of metabolic characteristics in bacteria and enables the creation of complex and controlled synthetic circuits.
