The development of economically feasible and sustainable biotechnological processes as alternatives to oil-based chemistry is one of the major goals of bio-based economy. The global chemical industry has initiated a crucial transition from petrochemical processes to bio-based chemical processes. Synthetic biology and bio-based processes are expected to become the preferred approach to produce chemicals from renewable feedstocks using cell factories.
One of the major challenges that this shift entails is the widespread adoption of standards to easily track, re-use and replicate a large number of experiments, parts, protocols and strains generated by these novel approaches. In this workshop, some of the major players in the European synthetic biology field will share their experience with the development of synthetic biology standards and how to promote their widespread adoption.
This workshop will be held in Braga, Portugal, at StartupBraga, on September 12. Three guests will give a talk about a related topic, each followed by a period of discussion where participants can interact with the speakers.
This workshop is organized as part of the SHIKIFACTORY100 project.
