To extend our understanding of genetic and chemical regulation in biological systems and to use this understanding to solve the challenges facing industrial biotechnology, clinical medicine, and agriculture.
The new Centre brings together the expertise required to develop leading-edge, interdisciplinary research with the management needed to translate this research into commercial applications.
The SynthSys Mission
Our mission is to deliver world-leading research in Systems and Synthetic Biology; combining theory and informatics with molecular biology to understand and re-design biochemical systems.
Our focus is to pioneer genetic and chemical tools to manipulate the cell, technologies to quantify responses at the single-cell level, and mathematical models to both predict and control cellular behavior.
