EMBO Practical Course
Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.
Synthetic Biology (SynBio) has become a rapidly developing area for tackling a large number of challenges in life science research. This is due to a combination of foundational advances in technologies such as large-scale DNA synthesis and new methods that allow integrating such raw synthesis power into engineering approaches, including genome wide small RNA regulation, dCas9-based regulation, and multiplexed genome engineering. Such fresh approaches fuel new types of biotechnological applications with immense impact on both fundamental science and society.
This course will provide the best and most exciting novelties in the field and focus on exploiting tools and concepts of SynBio for multi-scale engineering of bacterial systems. The intensive schedule includes lectures by experts in the field, discussions, poster sessions, and, importantly, an experimental program.
The course is directed to PhD students and early post-doctoral researchers active in molecular biology, biotechnology, systems biology and bioengineering. The experimental focus will be on microbiological systems.
The participants will learn about the design and workflow of Synthetic Biology studies and gain understanding about the possibilities and limitations of synthetic biology in different areas.
“By joining the course I discovered other research fields in SynBio and met great scientistsamong the lecturers and the participants. I gained a lot in terms of knowledge and inspirationthat will influence my own research in the years to come.” – Alberto De Maria, DTU Biosustain, Kongens Lyngby, Denmark
“The “Synthetic biology in action: beyond standard metabolism” course offered me excellentpractical and theoretical knowledge in the field. It also provided an invaluable networkingexperience with experts and peers.” – Elena Velázquez Muñoz, Centro Nacional de Biotecnología (CNB-CSIC), Madrid, Spain.
