SEED 2015 was focused on advances in the science and technology emerging from the field of synthetic biology. We broadly defined this as technologies that accelerate the process of genetic engineering.
Established and new members of our community will be brought together to discuss the latest progress in Constraint-Based Reconstruction and Analysis (COBRA). It will be chaired by Kiran Patil, EMBL and will take place in Heidelberg, Germany.
Inks from Silk Show Biomedical Promise; Activated Carbon Gets a Designer Label; Graphene Coating Promises to Improve Condenser Efficiency; Solar Materials Self-Assemble for Lengthy Energy Storage; and more.
Synthetic biology represents a new way of building biological systems via engineering tools and principles. Genetic components and pathways will be created to reprogram organisms, endowing them with novel functions for a wide range of applications.
Metabolic Engineering Delivers Low-Cost Hydrogen; Metal-Free Catalyst Recharges Zinc-Air Batteries; Aluminum Could Take Charge of the Battery Market; New Desalination Membrane Resists Chlorine; and more
