Programme seminar Technology for Life: Synthetic Biology and Nanoscopy

12 January 2017

Time: 14:00 - 17:00
Venue: Aula Conference Centre TU Delft

The building blocks of life, our DNA, cells, and microorganisms provide us with the tools and knowledge to realize future innovations. How do synthetic biology and nanoscopy contribute to the understanding and control principles in the engineering of these biological components?

  •  Session 1: Nanoscopy (chair Marileen Dogterom)

    • Bernd Rieger (TU Delft - Faculty of Applied Sciences/ImPhys): 
      Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy: where to go now?
    • Chirlmin Joo (TU Delft - Faculty of Applied Sciences/Bionanoscience): 
      Towards single-molecule protein sequencing
    • Xiaowei Zhuang (honorary doctor, Harvard University): 
      Illuminating biology at the nanoscale with single-molecule and super-resolution imaging
    • Presentation by Delft iGem students
  • Break (with iGem displays)

  • Session 2: Synthetic Biology (chair Isabel Arends)

    • Pascale Daran-Lapujade (TU Delft - Faculty of Applied Sciences/Biotechnology): 
      Towards modular synthetic platforms for remodelling of yeast metabolism
    • Drew Endy (honorary doctor, Stanford University, BioBricks Foundation): 
      Engineering living matter
    • Panel discussion: Implementation of future innovations in synthetic biology.

At the celebration of the 175th TU Delft foundation day, the speakers will address the toolbox development based on synthetic biology, and how nanoscopy can be used to study life.

Please register before 9 January 2017.
