Self-sustained, safe, stable and scalable microbial consortia (S.sup.5MicroCon) are described. The microbial consortia are regulated by photoautotroph-heterotroph interactions and RNA aptamer-based gene circuits. A rapid, high-throughput method for engineering RNA aptamer-based gene circuits (e.g. riboswitches) is also described.
