Jena Life Science Forum 2012

Designing living matter – Can we do better than evolution?

Jena Life Science Forum 2012, October 04-05, 2012

The Jena Life Science Forum (JLSF) is a scientific forum to discuss topics and issues in fundamental biological research that may be expected to shape our future.

This year’s meeting will focus on recent developments in synthetic biology. Three subjects seem to be most prominent: designing biomolecules – designing cells – designing organisms. Apart from basic scientific questions sociological and political aspects of synthetic biology will also be addressed.
