Synthetic Biology Gordon Research Conference and Seminar


The Synthetic Biology Gordon Research Conference will bring together scientists from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering to interact in a stimulating and relaxed environment. In this informal atmosphere, scientists at all stages – graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and established investigators – will have the opportunity to engage in spirited conversations over meals, during session discussions, throughout afternoon activities and into the evening after each session.

Topics include:

  • Reports of unpublished data on the latest enabling technologies
  • Advances in environment and mammalian applications
  • Engineering of undomesticated species and communities
  • Sophisticated re-deisgn of multi-scale systems at the gene, network and whole-genome level
  • Growth of synthetic biology in industry

Synthetic Biology Gordon Research Conference: Biology by Design
Sunday, July 30th – Friday, August 4th, 2017

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 2, 2017: Details and registration

For the first time the conference will incorporate a Gordon Research Seminar with the goal of facilitating participation by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education. This unique forum will provide an opportunity for early career researchers to network with other scientists, present new data and ideas, and to explore new state-of-the-art techniques, approaches, and applications.
