Synthetic Biology Scoping Study Consultation: Canberra

Open consultation on infrastructure requirements for those interested in the engineering of biology.

In response to the 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, the Australian Government’s Research Infrastructure Investment Plan recommended scoping studies for the exploration of eight emerging or growing areas.

Bioplatforms Australia is supporting the scoping study in Synthetic Biology with an independent expert working group. Together, they will be conducting an open forum and consultations with researchers and other stakeholders to clarify specific needs and gaps in infrastructure required for innovations in this field.

We anticipate discussion to address Australia’s capacity to engineer biology and may include concepts across the development pipeline such as a Genome Foundry, roboticised, high-throughput genomic engineering, associated software development, AI and -omics analytics. The discussion is not limited to applications across Health, Environment and Industrial Biotechnology. We would welcome and encourage your input.

There will be a light morning tea served from 11am ready for a 11:30 start.
