Our research program is focussed around six Application Domains
Agriculture and Food
Synthetic Biology offers the potential to re-imagine the future of agriculture by accelerating the design of next generation yeast and crop production platforms that are tailored to meet specific needs.
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.
Development of synthetic biology parts and tools that can be applied in a wide range of application areas.
Health and Medicine
Projects in this program of work aim to design new synthetic biology tools and platforms that could further global health research.
Research focussed on the social, ethical, institutional, legal and regulatory aspects of synthetic biology - to inform the development and implementation of synthetic biology solutions to Australia's greatest challenges in health, environment and industry.
