Plant Synthetic Biology Conference 2022

Meetings and courses
From: 19/09/2022 To: 21/09/2022
CRAG Auditorium

The Plant Synthetic Biology Conference will take place in Barcelona, Spain on September 19-21, 2022. This Conference is jointly organised by CRAG (Barcelona, Spain) and the CEPLAS-Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences, University of Düsseldorf (Germany). The meeting will bring together global leaders in the field and it will cover the most recent advances in plant synthetic biology, with an emphasis on enabling technologies for reprogramming plant cells, current agricultural and industrial applications, the development of new green models and several perspectives on the ethical and societal aspects of synthetic biology.

The Plant Synthetic Biology Conference offers a great platform for interaction and the opportunity to discuss new ideas, challenges and opportunities in the field. It also offers the chance for young synthetic biologists to present their work and interact with other mindlike individuals.

We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona!
