Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology: Tools and Technologies

28-29 January 2016, Ghent, Belgium

Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last 2 years has been breathtaking. 

The symposium will bring together some of the most highly regarded Academics (collectively having published ˃350 Nature, Cell and Science papers) and Companies in the world with novel technologies in several sessions, with topics focused on:

  • CRISPR and Synthetic Biology Tools
  • Gene and Genome assembly
  • CRISPR for re-engineering cellular systems
  • Future CRISPR applications
  • Expanding the Genetic Code

In addition to a great scientific and technology program, the conference will provide ample opportunities to network during the breaks, poster sessions, the conference dinner and our ‘Meet the Expert’ session!

Early Bird registration deadline: 10 December 2015

Final registration deadline: 14 January 2016
