    Synthetic biology is an emerging new discipline that applies engineering principles to biology and allows rational design of living systems. It opens new avenues in health-care and industrial biotechnology, and provides fundamental insight into the design principles of biological systems as a whole. Synthetic biology inherently depends on efficient integration of several disciplines. The symposium will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions on novel enabling technologies for synthetic biology in eukaryotic cells and facilitate exchange of ideas and new multi-disciplinary collaborations.   Aims   The main goal of the symposium is to bring together world-leading experts in all aspects of synthetic biology, including genome editing, systems modelling, synthetic circuits, systems biology and metabolic engineering.   Topics   Genome editing Modelling and computer-aided design Bio-bricks and synthetic circuits Synthetic cells Systems biology Metabolic engineering and industrial applications
