The first workshop on Plant Synthetic Biology will be held this MAY at MIT. Synthetic Biology provides a means to understand the complexities of natural processes and design new traits of interests (e.g., refactoring nitrogen fixation, genome editing, artificial chromosomes, and "parts characterization").
For information on the workshop please see: http://plantsynbio.org/
Hope to see you in Boston!
