Synthetic Biology for Production of Bio-based Materials Symposium
Join CSIRO to identify the challenges, issues and opportunities associated with commercial development of bio-based materials produced using synthetic biology and highlight the potential that can be achieved from investing in this area, on Tuesday, 15 – Wednesday, 16 June 2021.
This symposium brings together key experts from Australia and around the world who are interested in developing synthetic biology solutions for manufacturing bio-based materials across defense, health, and industrial biotechnology sectors. Bio-based materials (e.g. fibres) are derived from renewable biological resources. The use of synthetic biology to generate these materials enables the design of bio-based materials which have new or unusual properties, for example biologically active, biodegradable, or physical properties. In addition, synthetic biology may offer sustainable and cost-effective production alternatives to chemically manufactured materials.
