Synthetic Biology 4.0 ~ Next Conference in Hong Kong...

The Synthetic Biology 4.0 Conference organized by the BioBricks Foundation will be in Hong Kong this October. Highly recommended. I was just chatting with Prof Drew Endy about the emergence of the field and he was especially interested in the geography of synth-b innovation, namely where the centroids of activity are. TechLink's Adrian Fay suggested the promising potential of Latin America in this regard, especially Brazil and Argentina, both stealth powerhouses in biology, chemistry, and the life sciences generally. Perhaps we'll see SB5.0 in Buenos Aires in 2009!
