We are excited to launch another high energy, action filled synthetic biology conference in San Francisco this November. At SynBioBeta SF 2015, you’ll meet attendees from around the globe, learn best practices from, and hear from industry thought leaders, investors and entrepreneurs about the ever changing landscape of synthetic biology. We have extended the conference by two days this year which means more networking opportunities and more chances to connect with the growing community

Join us for conversations, panels, talks, and fireside chats on sector-specific progress ranging from research-enabling tools, green chemistry and low-cost DNA synthesis to  open source biology, scale-up of industrial biotech platforms to the growing importance of the organism industry, and the automation and the internet of biotech things. The stellar speaker lineup includes over 50 industry leaders including the recently announced keynote by Tim O’Reilly from O’Reilly Media, Sam Altman from Y Combinator, Jay Keasling from the Joint BioEnergy Institute and Jason Kelly from Ginkgo Bioworks.

“With over half a billion dollars invested in synthetic biology companies in 2015 alone, the industry is now at an inflection point” said John Cumbers, Ph.D, Founder of SynBioBeta. “Tech investors are turning into biotech investors and it’s great to see so much support for the companies from investors in the industry such as Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt and Jerry Yang.” John continued, “Silicon valley is waking up to a new kind of programmable material: DNA”.

SynBioBeta will also be hosting a Networking Brunch Cruise past the Golden Gate Bridge for anyone in the synthetic biology community to attend.
