Welcome to the UW Synthetic Biology web portal. This website represents a community of interdisciplinary researchers exploring one of the most exciting frontiers in science and technology: the engineering and evolution of novel life-forms to address technical challenges in health, energy, and the environment and to enhance our general understanding of living systems.
The mission objectives of this website are:
- To serve as a common portal and resource for synthetic biology researchers at UW.
- To inspire and educate the next generation of scientists and engineers.
- To promote public interest and dialog in the development of synthetic biological technologies.
To learn more about synthetic biology, start here.
