Course - Heidelberg, Germany
Synthetic Biology (SynBio) looks at biological systems as engineerable objects and thus amenable to manipulations that are common in man-made artefacts. The twist of SynBio is the application to live entities of notions of connectivity and assembly hierarchies, for addressing a variety of biological questions. Although recently various SynBio meetings ran in Europe, none has exposed a limited group to the practical aspects of the field. Thus, this course attempts to foster methodological interfaces between molecular biologists, physicists and engineers in order to design biological objects with new-to-nature properties. Therefore, the program includes a series of lectures by top experts in the field and an intensive experimental schedule.
This course focuses on the exploitation of tools and concepts of SynBio for multi-scale engineering of biological systems. The program consists of practicals with two daily lectures on closely related topics. The practicals will employ Gram-negative bacteria and yeast, the lectures will encompass a suite of topics beyond that, including activities on Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI).
