2018 Synthetic Biology: Engineering, Evolution & Design (SEED) is coming to Arizona

Posted on Updated on

Synthetic Biology: Engineering, Evolution & Design (SEED) is an annual conference that has been hosted in different cities since 2014: Manhattan Beach, CA; Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; and Vancouver, Canada. This year the rapidly growing, highly-visible meeting will take place in Scottsdale, AZ! SEED 2018 will focus on advances in science, technology, applications, and related investments in the field of synthetic biology. This year’s theme will be “synthetic biology at the leading edge of massive DNA synthesis, editing, and decoding.”

The Meeting Chairs are Karmella Haynes (ASU) and Ryan Gill (UC Boulder).

Keynote speakers will include Jim Collins (MIT), Jay Keasling (UC Berkeley), Floyd Romesberg (Scripps), and Pam Ronald (UC Davis).

The call for poster abstracts is open until May 26, 2018.

If you are interested in supporting the conference, please visit the webpage, SEED: Become a Sponsor or Exhibitor, for more information.

Posted on Updated on

CRI_ParisDr. Haynes has been invited by scientists at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) to speak at “Charting Future Paths of Open Synthetic Biology” in Paris, France. She will present a talk entitled “Engineering the human genome as chromatin” and participate in advising a strategy (white paper) for the recruitment and support of research fellows in synthetic biology. The invitation to this important international event was given in recognition of Dr. Haynes’ participation at the leading edge of synthetic biology and her high-impact contributions to the field.

News: “Soft” Side of Bioengineering Poised to Make Big Impacts

Posted on Updated on

ASU Full Circle recently highlighted the emerging Molecular, Tissue, and Cellular Bioengineering (MCTB) community at ASU and the second annual MCTB Symposium, co-chaired by Karmella Haynes.

J. Kullman, 07.27.17, ASU Full Circle: There are more technically precise descriptions of what’s at the core of a growing trend broadening the horizons of biomedical engineering than “the soft, squishy side of bioengineering.” But Karmella Haynes and Kaushal Rege still like the way that sums up what they and about 20 other Arizona State University faculty members are increasingly focusing on in their research and teaching.”
