The Carbon Revolution: Scaling circularity to replace fossil oil
The accelerating climate crisis combined with rapid population growth poses some of the most urgent challenges to humankind, all linked to the unabated release and accumulation of CO2 and waste across the biosphere. By harnessing our capacity...
Production of supply-limited natural product therapeutics using engineered yeast
Plants produce some of the most potent human therapeutics and have been used for millennia to treat illnesses. Two examples are vinblastine, the chemotherapeutic, and QS-21, an adjuvant used in several vaccines. Both molecules are large, highly decorated terpenes. Vinblastine is extracted from Catharanthus roseus and requires 1 ton of dried leaves to obtain 1 g....
Synthetic Biology for Sustainability and Human Well-being
Precision fermentation, a recent branch of synthetic biology, is transforming the production of food ingredients, nutrients, and fermented foods. With advancements in metabolic engineering and synthetic biology, traditional microbial fermentation has evolved into precision fermentation which utilizes human consumable food-grade microorganisms and precise genome editing for the economic and sustainable production of food ingredients and fermented foods. Numerous food tech startups...
15th Metabolic Engineering Conference
The conference enables participants to collectively explore how developments in metabolic engineering can advance diverse sectors across agriculture, bio manufacturing, medicine, and more. No other conference provides this breadth and excellence in the field of metabolic engineering.
Launched in September 2016, the Singapore Consortium for Synthetic Biology, SINERGY, aims to consolidate Singapore’s capabilities in synthetic biology and harness synergies across industry sectors to create a vibrant and globally connected bio-based economy in Singapore. Efforts to foster interactions and co-development between the industry, universities and research institutes will encourage user-inspired research, augment manpower development, as well as speed up the translation of expertise in synthetic biology for industry applications. SINERGY is supported by the National Research Foundation and hosted at the National University of Singapore.
Synthetic biology is a maturing scientific discipline that combines science and engineering in order to design and build new biological parts, devices and systems. Synthetic biology offers enormous opportunities to benefit society with promising applications in areas such as energy, healthcare and the environment.
