Cell-Free Synthetic Biology and Biocatalysis Listening Day — July 30, 2017 — Denver, CO

Submitted by on May 26, 2017 – 4:28 pmNo Comment
Cell-Free Synthetic Biology and Biocatalysis Listening Day   —   July 30, 2017   —    Denver, CO

On July 30, 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) will sponsor the Cell-Free Synthetic Biology and Biocatalysis Listening Day in Denver, Colorado. This event aims to investigate how cell-free biocatalysis and cell-free synthetic biology may serve to advance the emerging bioeconomy. BETO is seeking input from experts representing industry, academia, and national laboratories on the state of technology and its applicability to enabling enhanced carbon cycling and next-generation biofuels, bioproducts, and biomaterials.

Recent advances in synthetic biology are expanding the potential markets for the bioeconomy and presenting new tools to synthesize and produce advanced biobased products. New biotechnologies to enable cell-free synthetic biology and cell-free biocatalysis are emerging, and this listening day will investigate how they may support BETO efforts to promote novel conversion technologies and platforms to produce fuels, chemicals, materials, and other biobased products. A key focus of discussions will be the opportunities and barriers to applying the technology as a stand-alone conversion platform, as an enabling tool to inform research and development of whole-cell in vivo systems, or both.

This workshop will advance the DOE mission by exploring investment and research opportunities for an emerging biotechnology with potentially significant implications. The results will be published in a publicly available report with the objective of informing both public- and private-sector planning in the future.
