Organised by:

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis
Microbes surround us and give us valuable everyday products like beer, bread and wine. They've been used as a basic biotechnology for thousands of years, but new advances mean that we will soon be using them for a whole lot more. Synthetic biology is an exciting new science aiming to use engineering principles to re-design microbes for our many needs. In this talk we'll look at examples of what synthetic biology is, where we are taking it and what it all means for us all this century.
