The future of manufacturing will involve the union of biological and digital solutions—imagine silk without spiders, milk without cows, and leather without hides. All these things could be possible thanks to synthetic biology, which seeks to harness cellular processes to generate novel therapies, biomaterials, and environmentally friendly sources of food and energy. In this session, you’ll hear how this new field is driving changes in manufacturing by harnessing biological computers capable of producing biological systems to promote growth of the end product. You’ll hear about new tools and case studies that address the manufacturing challenges of synthetic biology.
