Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (Virtual 4th edition)
The Genome Engineering field has been revolutionized by CRISPR technologies, resulting in rapid, affordable and multiplex editing of genomes. Moreover, the number of CRISPR applications is continuously increasing. Next to this, progress in the Synthetic Biology field has been accelerated by recent developments in DNA synthesis and assembly technologies, and the expansion of the genetic code. During this two day conference, the latest developments in the fields of Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology will be presented by over 30 speakers from academia and industry. The world-renowned academics will showcase their latest research breakthroughs, while the technology developers in industry present their disruptive new technology platforms which drive the field forward. After three successful editions (organized in Sept 2013, January 2016 and January 2018) featuring each time ~300 attendees, we hope to further increase the impact of our meeting in this field. The conference will cover the following topics: Tissue engineering Bionanomaterials Direct evolution of pathways Protein design CRISPR (applications) Single Cell (meets CRISPR) DNA Synthesis Truly genome engineering At this virtual edition we will aim that speakers, attendees and exhibitors can interact remotely through a virtual environment, as one of the main goals of the VIB Conference Series is to provide the possibility for networking and collaboration. Submit an abstract to have a chance to win the poster prize! The time zone of the program is CET (Central European Time).
