iGEM 2013




    The iGEM Asia Jamboree 2013 will be hosted at the Chinese University of Hong Kong


    Theme of the Year: Synthetic Biology and Our Society


    One of the most influential modern technologies is genetic engineering of biological organisms to help human beings to resolve problems associated with our sustainability on planet earth. The name of synthetic biology as its emergence from genetic engineering has also taken us from the biology field to various aspects of science, medicine, and engineering. Such new technology of synthetic biology stems from the understanding of our genetic materials and its modification for applications in various aspects of health and medical cares, food and energy supply, environmental sustainability, industrial production and monitoring, all have significant impacts on our society as a whole. We hope to promote the idea of using synthetic biology to the people of Hong Kong with innovative ideas that will help solving many problems associated with human’s sustainability on earth to meet our societal needs. Reporters will be invited to join our Asia 2013 Jamboree and hopefully our message will be delivered to the general public.
