Biotech Trends in 2010: Get An Early Start at OGI’s Synthetic Biology Conference

OGI syntheticbiologyIn updating this blog’s Trends in 2009 series for 2010, I noted that synthetic biology has garnered recent attention in The New Yorker and The Economist and it may be poised to attract more commercial attention.   Here’s a great chance to get a jump on the topic…

Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) and Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) are hosting a free one-day symposium on synthetic biology on October 27th at MaRS.  It’s invitation only, but you can contact Helen Petropoulos <hpetropoulos at ontariogenomics dot ca> if you want to register.

The symposium will be chaired by Elizabeth Edwards, a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto, and presenters include leading researchers from across North America:

Here’s the blurb from the organizers:

“This symposium will explore the field of synthetic biology and its many application areas, culminating in a panel discussion focused on challenges and opportunities in one of today’s most promising research fields.  An open public forum on synthetic biology and its impact on society will follow the symposium program.”

Hope to see you there!
