Event Details

The Synthetic Yeast Genome Project (Sc2.0) is synthesizing and constructing a modified version of the S. Cerevisiae genome to test biological questions and give new functions.

For this one day meeting we will be bringing those around the world involved in the Sc2.0 project together in beautiful Taormina to discuss progress on the synthetic S. cerevisiae genome and opportunities to use the strains and tools of the project. Related topics in synthetic and systems biology will also be discussed.  This meeting is open to all interested in Sc2.0 and we encourage you (and your colleagues) to register if you’d like to attend.
