    University of Cambridge, UK, July 17 to 21, 2017

    Call for Abstracts Deadline: March 31, 2017

    Submission instructions here: http://www.taosciences.it/ssbss/#application-form

    Submit an abstract today for the Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School & Workshop (SSBSS 2017):


    The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School is the leading Summer School for sharing the state-of-the-art developments and achievements made in the fields of synthetic and systems biology.

    The School and Workshop will take place July 17-21 at the Robinson College, University of Cambridge, England, UK.
    The School and the Workshop is chaired by Massimo Gulisano and Giuseppe Nicosia, University of Catania - Italy, and Steve Oliver, University of Cambridge, England, UK.
    Submissions not accepted for talks will also be considered in the poster sessions.

    SSBSS 2017 will focus on advances in the science and technology emerging from the fields of synthetic biology, systems biology, genome synthesis and genetic engineering.
    The School and the Workshop will highlight new tool development, as well as the application of these tools to diverse problems in biotechnology, computational medicine, molecular biology including therapeutics, industrial chemicals and biofuels, natural
    products, and agriculture.

    If you are engaged in above cited topics that you believe can impact the state of the science and technology you must consider submitting.

    Given the rapidity with which this field moves, it is challenging for both newcomers and experts alike to stay updated with all of the latest advances.
    The goal of this summer school and workshop is to bring together scientists from academia and industry with diverse but relevant expertise in a setting
    conducive to discussion of new results and potential collaborative efforts. Invited talks will cover a wide range of topics ranging from fundamental basic science through to applications.
    Attendees of this workshop will have the opportunity to hear about the latest findings in this fast-paced field and to establish collaborations with scientists who have complementary expertise.

    Sessions integrate the recent achievements made in the fields of synthetic biology, systems biology, biochemical engineering, synthetic enzyme, evolutionary engineering,
    integrated omics, tools and methods, and emerging techniques, healthcare, biofuels, chemicals and materials, biologics, microbial and mammalian systems, and other disciplines and applications.

    Submissions should be related to the following areas of synthetic biology, systems biology, genome and genetic engineering:

    Applications of Synthetic & Systems Biology
    Biological Design Automation
    Computational/Mathematical Modeling and Design
    Computer Aided Design

    SSBSS 2017 solicits talks, posters and tool presentations on
    synthetic biology, systems biology, metabolic engineering, computational biology and
    genome engineering. The event brings together biologists, physicians,
    computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and physicists interested
    in a synthetic and/or system-level understanding of biological processes.

    Contributions should be submitted to one of the following categories:
    I) Talks,
    II) Posters,
    III) Tool presentations.

    Hosted by University of Cambridge
