Genome Engineering & Synthetic Biology is switching to a virtual format

25 January 2021

When live events will return is difficult to predict, but what we can guarantee is that on 22-24 September we will hold the 4th edition of Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology virtually. With this virtual event we want to give you a real conference experience including several networking features.

As this meeting is packed with amazing topics and top-notch speakers, we have decided to not make it a two day conference, but a three day conference! This way you can enjoy the sessions even more, without the feeling of being rushed. The virtual edition will give you the opportunity to personalize your event experience and put together your own program.
