2次收到Jef.Boekeemail来信,有关合成基因组与工程生物学会议通知,我由于时间因素不能参加,贴在这里供有兴趣参加的参考。

On behalf of Nancy J Kelley, NJK&A andmyself, we ask that you join us at the 4th Annual Sc2.0 and Synthetic GenomesConference July 16-17, 2015 in NYC!

Expanded from previous years to includeSynthetic Genomes and Engineering Biology topics of relevance, the conferencewill provide an update on the Synthetic Yeast Genome Project, Sc2.0 as well aspresent several special sessions including two workshops on “how yeast flavorswine and beer” with audience participation!

And new to this year’s program are twopanel discussions: “Genome Engineering and Society” and “What’s the Next BigGenome to be Synthesized?”

With 19 confirmed speakers and more to beadded from academia and industry, a poster session and keynote presentations onhuman artificial chromosomes and the open plant initiative, this will be theforum of the year for engineering biology.

The conference will be hosted at the New York Genome Centerand space is limited so don’t wait! Early bird registration ends April 30th.

Excitement is building for the 4th AnnualSc2.0 and Synthetic Genomes Conference this summer! On July 16-17th 2015 wewill convene in New York City at the New York Genome Centerto discuss progress in synthetic yeast genome engineering as well as a broaderdiscussion of other genome engineering efforts, CRISPRs, designer nucleases,and synthetic biology. This meeting is co-sponsored by NSF Science AcrossVirtual Institutes (SAVI), NYU Langone Medical Center and Nancy J Kelley& Associates.

Ambitious in its goal and spanning thedisciplines of biology, engineering and computer science, the Synthetic YeastGenome Project (Sc2.0) has garnered global attention as the world’s firstsynthetic, designer eukaryotic genome project. Now well underway, the Sc2.0international consortium engaging research scientists around the globe, isbuilding 16 designer synthetic chromosomes encompassing ~12 million base pairsof DNA.

While Sc2.0 represents the world's firsteffort to construct a designer eukaryotic genome, it won't be the last! Lookingbeyond Sc2.0, another emphasis of the meeting will be discussing other genomeengineering efforts, CRISPR, designer nucleases, and synthetic biology. Themeeting will feature panel discussions on industry and society, as well asspeakers and demonstrations from the lab automation and DNA synthesisindustries and a poster session.

Finally, there will be in-depth technical,gustatory and social analysis of yeast products of the liquid kind (coffee,beer and wine). For example, led by Dr. Troels Prahl, scientists at White Labsin partnership with bioinformatics colleagues at SGI such as Toby Richardson,are tackling the expansive genealogy of brewing yeasts to understand how thesestrains have evolved over time and how their gene content contributes to taste.Conference attendees will have the unique opportunity to taste several beersfor which the ‘genotype-phenotype’ relationship of the brewing yeast has beencharacterized.

Of course, also planned are numerousopportunities for conference attendees to socialize, advance their scientificdiscussions and enjoy New York!
