Synthetic biology is a young emerging discipline that has emerged from the convergence of biosciences, information technology and engineering. This discipline is slowly but surely revolutionising the Biotech Industry and is increasingly applied in previously unthought-of markets.
The fourth meeting in the Applied Synthetic Biology in Europe series will be an excellent opportunity to address the latest progress and advances in this fascinating discipline. Following from the first three meetings in the series, we will explore the wealth of applied synthetic biology research, covering diverse product and application areas and utilising biological systems from bacteria through yeast to plants and mammalian cells. Emphasis will again be on the commonalities and links between different approaches and the application of synthetic biology tools and techniques for industrial implementation.
The majority of oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts, and will be given by academic and industrial researchers from all levels from PhD students to professors and group leaders, consistent with the multidisciplinary nature of EFB.
We look forward to a few days of exciting discussion and excellent science.
This will be a joint meeting between the EFB Bioengineering & Bioprocessing Section (EBBS) and the Microbial Physiology Section. There will be opportunity to join these sections and help organise future meetings and events.
