Synthetic Biology Workgroup


This is the official webpage of the ETH Synthetic Biology Workgroup. In 2008 and 2009, this group has found a new home at the novel Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering, D-BSSE, which has synthetic biology as one of its great topics.
On this web-page, you find references to some of our past activities:
Synthetic Biology 3.0
EU- FP6 NEST Pathfinder Synthetic Biology Projects: EuroBioSyn

Other projects:

The ESF EuroCORE initiative EuroSYNBIO

Community work:

Report of the NEST-High Level Expert Group
Report for the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences
Report of the Swiss Commission on Ethics in Non-Human Biotechnology
OECD-NAS-RAS-International Symposium on Opportunities and Challenges in the Emerging Field of Synthetic Biology

What is behind Synthetic Biology

Listen to a feature on "Wissenschaft at DRS2" (mp3 in German) >>
... or learn about synthetic ecosystems on "Deutschlandfunk" (sorry, again in German) >>
