Our Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform is positioning Australia to play a role in one of the fastest growing areas of modern science so that we can understand global developments and, where appropriate, contribute to advances in areas including manufacturing, industrial biotechnology, environmental remediation, biosecurity, agriculture and healthcare research.
Development of synthetic biology parts and tools that can be applied in a wide range of application areas.
Environment and Biocontrol
Projects in this program of work will contribute to a world class capability in delivering environmental and biocontrol solutions based on SynBio technologies.
Projects in this program of work will contribute to a world class SynBio capability in delivering production and manufacturing innovations in the fibres and chemicals space.
Health and Medicine
Projects in this program of work aim to design new synthetic biology tools and platforms that could further global health research.
An understanding of socio-environmental needs and impacts is critical to the successful development and deployment of appropriate, acceptable and socially responsible SynBio solutions.
