For those in the synthetic biology space, the 2017 BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology is a must. This year’s World Congress will feature a 7-session Synthetic Biology track, featuring more than two dozen speakers – from scientists and academics to company executives.

A Monday morning session on “Utilizing Synthetic Biology to Address Global Challenges” will discuss how companies are employing synthetic biology to address challenges like climate change, as well as the economic and environmental opportunities that advances in industrial biotechnology are providing in transitioning to a biobased economy.

On Monday afternoon, a panel titled “Microbial and Synthetic Approaches to CO2 Utilization” will provide an overview of microbial systems, synthetic biology and in vitro options for CO2 uptake. Panelists will then explore how industry can utilize different upscaling approaches to achieve beneficial global climate outcomes.

With sessions like these on the synthetic biology track, and nearly a hundred educational sessions overall, BIO’s 2017 World Congress is a can’t-miss.

“BIO’s 2017 World Congress will feature the most diverse group of speakers and presenters in the conference’s history, with scientists and executives from start-up companies, investors from the finance sector, consumer product manufacturers and government officials from across Canada, Europe, the United States and Asia,” Brent Erickson, executive vice president of BIO’s Industrial & Environmental Section, says. “The education program and partnering system provide a unique forum for conference attendees to share the latest advances in renewable chemicals, synthetic biology, enzymes, food ingredients, fragrances, flavors, cosmetics, biofuels and biorefineries, agricultural crops and biobased materials.”
