Is Synbio your future? Find out at 'Young Researcher Cafe'

On september 19 Synthetic Biology PhD-student at KU, Tomas Laursen, will open the Young Researcher Cafe's autumn season of lectures with a talk entitled "Synthetic biology - building with nature's own specialized building blocks".

Synthetic biology is about exploring nature's mechanisms and building blocks in order to build similar systems with the aim of producing many of the materials that surround us in our everyday life. This demands collaboration between both molecular plant biologists, biochemists, biophysicists, nanotechnologists.

In this exiting intersection synthetic biology is blooming right now.

Come and be introduced to the novel interdisciplinary research field in which Denmark is taking a pioneering lead. The lecture will have a special focus on synthetic plant biology.
