Biofaction at Keysynbio

Biofaction’s Dr. Lei Pei will be holding a talk titled ‘Xenobiological Approaches to Improve Biocontainment‘ during Keysynbio (Perspectives and Key Issues in Synthetic Biology: Opportunities, Risks and Policies) in  June. Keysynbio as part of the SYNERGENE project.

The University of Ljubljana and the University of Padua are organizing an international workshop on “Perspectives and Key Issues in Synthetic Biology: Opportunities, Risks and Policies”. The event will take place in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, on the 18th and 19th of June 2015 in the Hotel City.

Talk abstract: The definition of xenobiology will be introduced. Based on the recent technological achievements, the applications of xenobiology to improve biocontainment will be explored. These applications are ranging from biocontainment approaches based on codon reassignment, genome recoding, and non-canonical biomolecules. Furthermore, the challenges raised by xenobiology to biosafety will be discussed.
