6th International Conference on Plant Synthetic Biology, Bioengineering and Biotechnology | AIChE

This conference brings together scientists and engineers from universities, industry, and government working in all aspects of plant synthetic biology, plant bioengineering, and plant biotech. This year’s program focusses on plant biotechnology, applied plant research and synthetic biology, engineering plant specialized metabolism and bio production of plant metabolites, and engineering climate-resilient crops. 

Funding Opportunities Available

Funding Available for U.S. Based Students, Post-Docs and Early Career Professors: We have limited funds available to provide registration support to people not currently registered for the meeting. Fill out the application form to be considered for support.

Our invited speakers will present cutting-edge research covering diverse applications of plant synthetic biology. I am particularly interested in the sessions related to plant metabolic engineering for agricultural and medical applications.
