Time & Location
25 Mar, 14:00 – 15:30 EET
You are warmly welcome to our second Synbio Talk! – an event series taking place every month where we talk about different topics related to synthetic biology. Our aim with these events is to build a stronger synbio community in Finland and beyond as well as to strengthen collaboration networks in the field of synthetic biology.
For this Synbio Talk taking place on Thursday, March 25th at 14:00 (EET), we will introduce IGEM and present some of the projects disseminated in the Nordics during the last couple years as part of the IGEM Competition. This is a perfect opportunity for students in Finland interested in opening up IGEM teams at their universities and for companies or individuals looking to collaborate with students in the field of synthetic biology.
