Synthetic Biology is hot! 

Next year (2019) there will be a satellite meeting on Synthetic Biology in association with the Plant Biology 2019 meeting, to be held in San Jose, California. 

Plant Physiology is assembling articles for a Focus Issue on Synthetic Biology (click here for more information) for publication in 2019. 

And we're planning a series of Plantae webinars on the topic of Synthetic Biology for later this year. 

With that in mind, we'll be starting a collection of articles on the topic of synthetic biology. Do you have any to share? Tag your contributions SyntheticBiology, or send us a message with your contributions and we will add them to the collection. 

As you can see from this profile of Ginkgo Bioworks, there is a lot of money being invested in this topic - it's time to learn more about it!
