Australia’s resource industry is currently under pressure due to declining ore grades. Finding new ways to process lower-grade ores is a necessity to maintain productivity and value in the mining industry for Australia.
Breakthroughs in biotechnology, health diagnostics and therapeutics and industrial biocatalysts will be the focus of a new research collaboration announced today between the CSIRO Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform (SynBioFSP), and Queensland University of Technology (QUT).
Congratulations to our 2019 Syn Bio FSP PhDs. See the full list here.
An exciting synthetic biology research project is looking at ways to deploy ‘pseudo jellyfish’ to clean up harmful spills in oceans and waterways.
CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, has joined a network of the world’s leading Biofoundries that will support a paradigm shift in the way synthetic biology research is undertaken.
Bacteria are incredibly chemically diverse: there are bacteria that breathe metals, make their own fertiliser from the air, eat electricity, and that can convert gaseous carbon dioxide into useful chemicals without the need for photosynthesis. Unfortunately, many of the bacteria that have useful chemical properties are hard to grow, grow sluggishly, or are so fastidious […]
The SBA 2019 conference website is now open for registration and abstract submission. Details for plenary speakers will be added shortly. Early bird registration discounts close on June 30th
In an age where banned substances are becoming increasingly harder to detect, we are in sore need of new detection methods. Enter synthetic biology.
Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform (FSP) Director, Assoc. Professor Claudia Vickers introduces the FSP as part of the Land and Water Business Unit Seminar Series.
