Synthetic biology driving industrial translation in the bioeconomy

Posted on: 06/07/2017

The 3rd International IET/SynbiCITE Engineering Biology Conference will take place on 12-13 December in London

Synthetic biology is a relatively young area of research with the potential for exciting applications across many sectors. It harnesses tools and concepts from physics, engineering and computer science to build new biological systems by “engineering biology.”

The 3rd International IET/SynbiCITE Engineering Biology Conference will provide a platform for the international synthetic biology community to hear and present their leading edge research in synthetic biology and demonstrate how these findings are being embraced by industry.
