Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School:
"Biology meets Engineering and Computer Science"

Taormina, Italy, June 15-19, 2014

*Application Deadline: February 15 2014*

Recent advances in DNA synthesis have increased our ability to build  
biological systems. Synthetic Biology aims at streamlining the design  
and synthesis of robust and predictable biological systems using  
engineering design principles. Designing biological systems requires a  
deep understanding of how genes and proteins are organized and  
interact in living cells: Systems Biology aims at elucidating the  
cellular organization at gene, protein, cell, tissue, organ and  
network level using computational and biochemical methods.

The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School (SSBSS) is a  
full-immersion course on cutting-edge advances in systems and  
synthetic biology with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts.  
The school provides a stimulating environment for doctoral students,  
early career researches and industry leaders. Participants will also  
have the chance to present their results (Oral presentations or  
Posters) and to interact with their peers.
