Synthetic Biology

Synthetic Biology Workshop will focus on the current efforts in experimental and analytical research on synthetic biology: structure, function, genetics and design. It will also address new experimental and computational approaches for interpreting and understanding data from biophysical chemistry and structural studies on biomolecules assemblies and manipulation. Engineering of metabolic pathways, biomolecules and organisms through synthetic biology is an important focus within the scope of the workshop
