View Full Event Details

Concepts from molecular, systems, and synthetic biology and engineering will have to be combined for the development of efficient biotechnological processes. The summer school aims to familiarize both biologists and engineers with relevant molecular biological methods and modeling and engineering tools from systems and synthetic biology. There will also be a visit to the gene synthesis site of Thermo Fisher Scientific/Geneart GmbH in Regensburg, Germany.
