The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has launched a new journal, entitled Engineering Biology, to reflect the fact that synthetic biology/engineering biology is, fundamentally, now widely recognised as a field of engineering.
UK Synthetic Biology start-up survey 2017
The UK’s first survey of the Synthetic Biology industry following a year of significant progress.
SynbiCITE’s UK Synthetic Biology start-up survey 2017 will assess the current and potential size of the Synthetic Biology industry, looking closely at growth trends, company scale, the value of the sector, key stakeholders and the commercial impact it could have. The challenges facing the industry, such as funding and IP protection, regulatory issues and ethics will also be evaluated. The completed report will be available this summer.
SynbiCITE has created a globally renowned national resource of interacting partners from academia, industry and business across the UK to accelerate the commercialisation of world-class science and emerging technologies encompassed by synthetic biology into new products, tools, processes and services.
Innovation, education & collaboration
Watch SynbiCITE's new film to get an insight into the potential that synthetic biology offers us all.
Synthetic biology is unlocking significant new opportunities for industries ranging from life sciences and specialty chemicals to bioenergy and waste remediation. By facilitating the creation of new tools and techniques, synbio has the potential to reshape many technologies to affect our lives positively and to reduce the impact that we have on our planet. Synbio is the engineering of biology and it’s already helping to make many businesses more effective, more productive and more environmentally friendly.

We partner with some of the world’s most forward-thinking organisations
We support our partners through events and training programmes including problems-solutions brokerage meetings. We provide funding of development projects including seed funding of Proof of Concept projects and follow-on funding of longer, larger projects for the development of prototypes and taking these on to pilot production scale manufacturing.View our network
