Synthetic Biology Expands Its Tool Kit

BIO International Convention

Blogging on today’s Synthetic Biology “Tools of the Trade” session at the BIO International Convention is a little bit like competing in the All-England Summarize Proust Competition. But here goes. The synthetic biology field is predicated on the design, build, test, learn cycle. And each of the companies in today’s session has developed a new tool within that cycle. Transcriptic, for instance, has developed a tool that enables reproducible experiments by automating the build function Read More >

#BIOWC16: An Overview of the Synthetic Biology Track

BIO World Congress

Design. Build. Test. Learn. That has been the mantra for companies presenting in the Synthetic Biology track at the 13th annual BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology. Synthetic biology is an extension of the continuum of innovation in genetic engineering. This emerging field of research, development and commercialization of new biotechnology products applies the rigor of traditional engineering and computer science to life science applications. One of the first sessions of the World Congress adopted Read More >
