    BSA Distinguished Lecture

    "Life Redesigned: The Emergence of Synthetic Biology"

    Presented by Professor James Collins, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Boston University, Harvard University

    4 pm, Berkner Hall Auditorium

    Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 4:00 pm

    Hosted by: Peter Wanderer

    From cheaper drugs and rapid diagnostic tests to targeted therapies that attack antibiotic-resistant "superbugs," synthetic biology will change lives in years to come. Engineers, physicists, and biologists in this growing field are making such advancements possible using proteins, genes, and other bits of DNA to rewire and reprogram organisms with biological circuits similar to electronic networks. During his talk, Collins will highlight recent efforts to create synthetic gene networks and programmable cells. He will also discuss a variety of synthetic biology applications for computing, technology, and medicine.
