Partnering the UK’s growing synthetic biology industry with industrial collaborators, research-base expertise, investment opportunities and funders

The Synthetic Biology Special Interest Group (SynBio SIG) helps to partner the UK’s growing synthetic biology industry with industrial collaborators, research-base expertise, investment opportunities and funders.

Funded by Innovate UK and BBSRC, the SynBio SIG is coordinated by the Knowledge Transfer Network to bring together the UK’s best and brightest biotechnologists and help them form new, productive partnerships and collaborations.

We are working hard with the UK Synthetic Biology Leadership Council (SBLC) in the implementation of Biodesign for the Bioeconomy, the UK Synthetic Biology Strategic Plan 2016, to establish an internationally competitive synthetic biology industry in the UK.
