Synthetic biology involves redesigning biological systems found in the natural world or making new ones from scratch. Benefits expected from synthetic biology including low carbon plastics, new biofuels, and rapid vaccine development. But synthetic biology’s ground-breaking prospects are accompanied by ethical, risk, and equity policy concerns. Are we prepared for a world where synthetic biology can reshape our lives, economies, and environment?
The workshop will address what is synthetic biology, and then asks how can this fast emerging technology be responsibly developed?
