EMBO Workshop: Creating is Understanding: Synthetic Biology Masters Complexity

22 September 2019 - 25 September 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre,
Meyerhofstraße 1,
Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Our workshop fosters the trust that creating is understanding. We have prepared a program with four themes that are geared toward basic research while being at the forefront of synthetic biology. We start by asking how engineering can be used as an interpretive framework to biology, we then probe how biology can be interfaced with the non living (e.g. electronic devices, software), we next explore how synthetic biology can be used to reconstruct cellular systems (minimal, genome, and consortia) and we close by questioning how other biology is possible through engineering.
