BlueBio4Future | Short Course in Synthetic Biology 29-31 May

Registration for the BlueBio4Future Short Course in Synthetic Biology are open!


The course will cover topics such as development of molecular tools for synthetic biology, cloning and refactoring of biosynthetic gene clusters encoding natural products, high-throughput methodologies for genome screening of new compounds and the use of biochemical catalysts and engineered microbes. It will count with the participation of BlueBio4Future team members as well as specially invited researchers in the field: Julie Zedler, Paul D’Agostino, Vincent Libis and Stephen Wallace.


This three-day training (29th - 31st of May) will be divided into teaching sessions on the first day, which will cover the fundamentals of synthetic biology; we will have invited speakers on the second day, who will share with the audience their most recent research and knowledge. Students will have the opportunity to interact closely with these researchers. Finally, on the last day, students will be challenged with hands-on activities.

There is vacancy limitation, therefore your application will go through a selection process.
