Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last years has been breathtaking.

During this two day conference, the latest developments in the fields of Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology will be presented by over 30 speakers from academia and industry. The world-renowned academics will showcase their latest research breaktroughs, while the technology developers in industry present their disruptive new technology platforms which drive the field forward.

After three successful editions (organized in Sept 2013, January 2016 and January 2018) featuring each time ~300 attendees, we hope to further increase the impact of our meeting in this field.
