Spotlight on Cell-Free Synthetic Biology - final opportunity to apply to OpenPlant Fund by 1 Dec 2016
In vitro or cell-free synthetic biology is a topic of growing interest to many groups in Cambridge and the Synthetic Biology SRI is pleased to announce an upcoming programme of activities to promote and support interdisciplinary work in this space. We kicked off on 19 Oct 2016 with a SynBio Forum and workshop providing an overview of in vitro systems and their potential applications.
