ASBE V moves to an on-line meeting

COVID-19 is still with us. For safety reasons, the EFB ASBE V meeting will now be held on-line. The good news: registration and abstract submission are now open. More short talks and flash poster presentations are available. Abstract submission deadlines:

  • To be considered for oral or poster presentation: 22nd September
  • Poster only submission: 1st October.

We are pleased to invite you to join us for the fifth edition of the Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe meeting (ASBE V), which will be held from 2nd-4th November 2020. Chaired by Pascale Daran-Lapujade (TU Delft, The Netherlands), Pablo Iván Nikel (DTU Biosustain, Denmark), Tim Overton (U of Birmingham, UK) and Urartu Seker (Bilkent University, Turkey). ASBE V is a meeting sponsored by the Bioengineering and Bioprocessing Section in collaboration with the Microbial Physiology Section of the European Federation of Biotechnology.

Following the success of the first four meetings in the series, ASBE V will explore the wealth of applied Synthetic Biology research, covering bioproducts and applications of different biological systems from bacteria through yeast to mammalian cells. We will emphasise the commonalities, overlaps and links between different approaches and the application of applied Synthetic Biology for industrial implementation. Furthermore, the meeting will bring together key partners from both academia and industry interested in diverse applications of Synthetic Biology. Designed with a mix of international guest lectures by prestigious scientists in the field, the program will feature lectures selected by the scientific advisory board and presentations selected from submitted abstracts. ASBE V will offer an opportunity to academic and industrial researchers from all levels (from Ph.D. students to professors and group leaders), to share their research with the burgeoning Synthetic Biology community.

Join us to share the latest progress and advances in the continuously expanding field of applied Synthetic Biology: ASBE V will be full of exciting discussions and excellent science!

First joint meeting of ASBE and EUSynBioS
November 2 2020

We are happy to announce that ASBE V has joined forces with the European Synthetic Biology Society (EUSynBioS). EUSynBioS is a non-profit organization, founded to support synthetic biology. EUSynBioS brings together synthetic biologists from across Europe and beyond, supporting researchers through academic and industrial collaboration. In this first edition of our joint meeting, EUSynBioS will offer a programme for early career scientists in the morning of November 2nd, with a special registration offer for students who will also participate in ASBE V. Please check the schedule in the Programme button below, and special rates in the Registration tab.”
