About SB7.0

The goal of SB7.0 is to unite again the international synthetic biology communities to take a fresh look at the key topics and challenges that our field faces. Synthetic biology cannot advance without exploring and embracing the changes that it brings. As practitioners, scholars, and citizens we need to work together to explore the possibilities and plan strategically for collective growth of our science, its beneficial applications, and responsible practices.

Synthetic biology can be used to advance so many facets of the world today, from agriculture and biomanufacturing, to groundbreaking cancer treatments and medicines, to even fashion and information technology. As the science continues to evolve, the scientists, engineers, and designers themselves need to focus our efforts on creating local biological solutions to meet global needs. But what we can’t forget is to take a step back and look at the world as a whole. Not just how does any one latest advancements better human life, but what are the footprints we are leaving behind? How does what we develop ultimately affect the world, from insects and plants to animals and aquatic life? While the full potential of synthetic biology continues to develop, we as a community must join together to make sure we don’t lose focus on the global impacts of our collective capacities.  How can we best help not only humans but also the rest of the planet?

Singapore, a country that is rich in cultural diversity and strategic capacities, affords us the perfect venue in which to refocus on the diversity and goals of synthetic biology as a field. As a community, how can we make the education, science, and business opportunities more available to all people regardless of race, gender, or socio-economic background? It’s only with continuous diversification and expansion that the synthetic biology industry will be able to realize it’s full potential.  Please join us to learn about the latest and best work from all over the world, and to help develop the most important next steps for our still-emerging field.
