Symposium on Synthetic Biology and CRISPR Technology (SynBioCT)

Venturing a New National Frontier

The Institute of Systems Biology (INBIOSIS) Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) is organizing the Symposium on Synthetic Biology and CRISPR Technology (SynBioCT) 2022 on 17 May 2022. This is an inaugural and hybrid event organized primarily for promoting synthetic biology and CRISPR technology research among local and international academic and research institutions.

The objectives of this symposium are;

  • To provide a networking and discussion platform for the participants who are already involved in CRISPR technology, systems and synthetic biology research or for those who are going to venture/undertake bioengineering approach in their existing research

  • To organize intellectual discussion on the advancement in CRISPR technology, systems and synthetic biology research

  • To provide a research network gateway among young and established researchers in academia, industry and government agency

Research topics:

• Genome editing
• Bioengineering
• Metabolic engineering
• Protein engineering
• Synthetic biology
• Systems Biology
• CRISPR technology
• Omics technology
• In silico analysis
• Bioinformatics
• Computational Biology
