In October, Wageningen Campus will showcase the theme of synthetic biology. Researchers will meet the public. What is it that they are actually doing in the field of synthetic biology? Come and find out at SynCity Days. On October 6th, Lucas Evers (Open Wetlab) will present 'Do It Together Biology - Synergy between Creativity and Synthetic Biology' at the festival.
Synthetic biology is a top-notch research area for engineers and biologists. In synthetic biology, new substances are created, such as medicines or completely new biological systems that have no reason to occur in nature, by doing things like re-designing cells or parts of cells. At Wageningen University & Research, a great deal of attention is paid to Synthetic Biology. Our own investments have made various new research programmes possible.
