Synthetic biology is an exciting area of multidisciplinary science that enables us to engineer new technology, processes and products that are of benefit to human/animal health, the environment and food security. It also allows us to deepen our understanding of living systems by testing hypotheses through the construction and analysis of new systems using biological components.
The Warwick Integrative Synthetic Biology (WISB) centre delivers an integrated, internationally leading programme of research, innovation and training for synthetic biology.
WISB is part of the University of Warwick and a
BBSRC/EPSRC Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC).
