Synthetic biology is fundamentally a method, a logical way to engineer biology for the 21st century. Our research will help transform biotechnology into the cheap and rapid solution for a diverse range of problems. Our goal as synthetic biology researchers is to develop the tools and technology so that in twenty years time producing a new designer microbe is as simple as assembling a bicycle.
To bring synthetic biology to fruition, we're looking for a wide variety of collaborations - both academic and industrial. Medicine, energy, diagnostics, pollution, cosmetics, materials and computation are just a few areas where synthetic biology can be applied to yield exciting new biotechnologies. If you are interested in a biotech solution to your problem, we would be very interested in helping engineer the product in a logical, predictable and rapid fashion. We feel that our technology has the potential to revolutionise this century and we're looking for the best ways to apply it.
