The Centre is organising a lectures and workshops on Synthetic Biology in which the topic is presented in a way that is generally understandable for the public and interested students from various study programmes.
This year, on the 8th of June, the German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB e.V) and the Cetnre for Synthetic Biology are very proud to host the third SynBio World Cafe in Darmstadt. This annual event series brings together key players from academia and indurty to discuss about the current state and the future of Synthetic Biology in Germany.
Together with Nicola Patron, Johannes Kabisch organizes webinars in which the European working groups of the Global Biofoundries Alliance present themselves. The Centre is part of the GBA with the centrally accessible CompuGene Robotics Platform.
The Graduate School Life Science Engineering first retreat was hold at Darmstädter Haus in Kleinwalsertal in March 2022. The interdisciplinary team, including PhD students, supervisors and guest speakers had a great time discussing science and enyoing the snow.
On 1-3 September 2021, the German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB) held the digital German Conference on Synthetic Biology (GCSB) together with the Centre for Synthetic Biology at TU Darmstadt. The Conference Booklet can be found at https://www.gcsb.info.
The virtual conference takes place from December 1st – 18th and features a selection of world specialists working in the field of Biosystems Design and Synthetic Biology including 6 Nobel laureates. The conference is organized by Stanford University, the University of Warwick, and BioDesign Research.
Bioeconomy is one of the topics of our century. One of the most important questions must therefore also be “How education can be shaped for a sustainable bio-economy?”. The Centre for Synthetic Biology and GASB are seeking answers to these questions in their workshop as part of the Global Bioeconomy Summit 2020.
The Centre for Synthetic Biology wanted to host its opening event at TU Darmstadt on 23-24 April 2020. International lecturers from the field of synthetic biology were invited. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the event was canceled.
On May 13 2019, stakeholders from academia and industry discussed the future trajectories of Synthetic Biology. The German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB e.V.) and the LOEWE cluster CompuGene organized the “SynBio World Cafe” in the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus in Darmstadt. This event brought together representatives from research institutions, corporations, startups and venture capital.
The 15th CMSB conference once again brought together computer scientists, biologists, mathematicians, engineers and physicists interested in a system-level understanding of biological processes, their study and modelling.
The LOEWE focus CompuGene organized an international symposium on computer-aided development of synthetic circuits in the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg-Haus.
The LOEWE Research Cluster iNAPO – ion conducting nanopores – is engaged in the construction of nanoscale sensors modeled after nature. The workshop provided researchers from Materials Science, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Electrical Engineering the opportunity to interdisciplinary present and discuss the latest research findings and describe emerging technologies and directions in nanopore research.
