ANNOUNCEMENT: ESF-EMBO Research Conference on Synthetic Biology of Antibiotic Production II
The ESF-EMBO Research Conference on Synthetic Biology of Antibiotic Production II,
30 August to 04 September 2014. Sant Feliú de Guixols, Spain (http://syntheticbio.esf.org). This meeting will be following the success of the 1st meeting held in 2011 and will cover selected hot topics in synthetic biology tools and concepts, with applications to the biochemistry and biotechnology of antibiotics and other natural products. Selected talks on antibiotic resistance and antibiotics in the environment, as well as industrial and clinical aspects of antibiotic production will provide further context for the debate.
ANNOUNCEMENT: ERASynBio 3rd call for twinning: Building new collaborations between researchers in Synthetic Biology
The third call of the ERASynBio Twinning Program (SynBio TWIN) will open on 1st December, 2013 to encourage new collaboration between researchers in synthetic biology. The goal is to establish cross-border partnerships, with a focus on interdisciplinarity, and to strengthen European efforts to achieve sustainable development of the Synthetic Biology community. Note that US colleagues are eligible under conditions set forth in the attached announcement. Your short proposals will be processed continuously as they come until 31 March 2014. Projects cannot last longer than six months and should be finished by mid-October 2014 because ERASynBio is ending at the end of 2014.
