Recent advances in DNA synthesis have increased our ability to build
biological systems. Synthetic Biology aims at streamlining the design
and synthesis of robust and predictable biological systems using
engineering design principles. Designing biological systems requires a
deep understanding of how genes and proteins are organized and
interact in living cells: Systems Biology aims at elucidating the
cellular organization at gene, protein, cell, tissue, organ and
network level using computational and biochemical methods.
The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School (SSBSS) is a
full-immersion course on cutting-edge advances in systems and
synthetic biology with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts.
The school provides a stimulating environment for doctoral students,
early career researches and industry leaders. Participants will also
have the chance to present their results (Oral presentations or
Posters) and to interact with their peers.
Other speakers will be announced soon.
Students may submit a research abstract for presentation. School
directors will review the abstracts and will recommend for poster or
short-oral presentation. Abstract should be submitted by February 15,
2014. The abstracts will be published on the electronic hands-out
material of the summer school.
