On behalf of the New Phytologist Trust and workshop organisers (Anne Osbourn and Keith Lindsey), I am pleased to announce that we are holding the 4th New Phytologist Workshop (#4NPW) focusing on Synthetic Biology in June at the University of Bristol, UK.


The overall goal for the workshop is to bring together scientists working in the highly interdisciplinary field of synthetic biology to present cutting-edge research aligned with three key themes – ‘Engineering principles and approaches in synthetic biology’, ‘Synthetic biology in microbes’ and ‘Synthetic biology in plants’. Ample time has been set aside for discussion following each presentation, and also in a final discussion and summary session at the end. The third theme of the workshop brings plants to the fore in a synthetic biology context.


Workshop format

The workshop will take place over two-days and will be held in the NSQI building at the University of Bristol, UK. Each speaker will give a 30-minute presentation on their work; this will then be followed by 15-minutes for questions and discussion. Each presentation will be recorded and will be available on YouTube after the close of the meeting to help highlight this exciting field.
