THE INTERNATIONAL PARK OF CREATIVITY IS AN INDUSTRIAL MEMBER OF SYNBERC
The Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center (SynBERC) is a multi-institutional research effort that aims to lay the foundations for the new scientific field of Synthetic Biology.
SynBERC’s vision is to catalyze biology as an engineering discipline in order to develop a functional understanding and technologies that allow researchers to design and build standardized systems, integrating biological systems in order to conduct several specific tasks. Essentially, biology is becoming easier for engineers.
SynBERC gathers a lot of the pioneers (biologists and engineers from world renowned institutions) of synthetic biology in order to work together and lay the foundations for this new field.
Synberc is made up of two areas:
1. Universities: Berkeley, San Francisco, Harvard, MIT, Stanford.
2. Industries: Agilent Technologies, Conagen, Genome Compiler, Synthace, Amyris, Dow, Ginkgo BioWorks, Lookneed Martin, Synthetic Genomics, AutoDesk, DSM, Givaudan, Lygos, Teselagen, Biomax, Dupont, GlaxoSmithKline, Micro Aerospace Solution, Universal Biomining, Biota, Gen9, Intrexon, Monsanto, International Park Of Creativity, Bp, Geneforge Ltd, Kalion, Pivot, VTT, Braskem, Genomatica, L´Oreal, Refactored Materials.
