Synthetic biology and engineering biology are radically altering the way we do science and how new technologies and products will shape and change the societies we live in.
The UK synthetic biology community has been shaping the field since its early inception, growing from strength to strength with loci of excellence to be found across the length and width of the nation.
SBUK, the UK's premier synthetic biology and engineering biology conference will bring us all together at Newcastle to share our best science.

How Microbiology was run
To celebrate 75 years of publishing for the community, the Microbiology Society is releasing a series of three papers on the history of its founding journal, Microbiology.
In this second paper, Dr Peter Collins looks at how the first editorial team ran the journal, the challenges they faced, and how a generalist journal picked its way through the many subdisciplines that together constitute the science of microbiology.
Discover how the journal has developed over the years and how the Microbiology Society keeps pace with future developments in the numerous specialist areas of research that comprise microbiology.
