Description

Workshop on Synthetic Biology Standards


Introduction

The development of economically feasible and sustainable biotechnological processes as alternatives to oil-based chemistry is one of the major goals of bio-based economy. The global chemical industry has initiated a crucial transition from petrochemical processes to bio-based chemical processes. Synthetic biology and bio-based processes are expected to become the preferred approach to produce chemicals from renewable feedstocks using cell factories.

One of the major challenges that this shift entails is the widespread adoption of standards to easily track, re-use and replicate the large number of experients, parts, protocols and strains generated by these novel approaches. In this workshop, some of the major players in the European synthetic biology field will share their experience with the development of synthetic biology standards and how to promote their widespread adoption.

This workshop does not have hands-on (practical) sessions. Three guest will give a talk about a related topic, each followed by a period of discussion where participants can interact with the speakers.

The workshop will end with a ~1h roundtable discussion.
