Dear colleagues and friends,

This Advanced Lecture Course explores how we can design, engineer and characterise biosystems utilising advanced quantitative methods and technologies. In addition to considering the diversity of applications of synthetic biology (build-to-apply), we will examine how engineering new biological systems can help us improve our understanding of the naturally evolved biosphere (build-to-understand). Join our faculty of leading experts in what will be an informative and exciting week of cutting-edge lectures, classes and discussions!

We are very much looking forward to welcome you in Spetses!

Yours Sincerely
John McCarthy
