Keystone Symposia: Precision Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology: Designing Genomes and Pathways
Date: March 17, 2013
Location: Breckenridge, Colorado, USA

Organized by Dana Carroll of The University of Utah School of Medicine and Jeff D. Boeke of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the conference will:

  • Convene with a keynote address by Frances H. Arnold of California Institute of Technology, followed by four days of stimulating plenary and poster sessions;
  • Share and expand knowledge in the field by bringing together scientists who are developing tools for precision genome engineering; using those tools for specific purposes in a wide range of organisms, including humans; creating whole synthetic genomes with prospects for wholesale reengineering; and engineering cells with novel pathways and properties;
  • Provide an outstanding forum for interaction among students, postdoctoral fellows and senior investigators who envision careers in genome and pathway design.
