Event date(s): Wednesday, September 26, 2018 to Friday, September 28, 2018
Location: Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, 975 N Warson Rd, St. Louis, MO 63132


The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center will host its 19th Annual Fall Symposium in Saint Louis, Missouri Wednesday, September 26, through Friday September 28, 2018.  The theme, “Bioengineering:  Synthetic Circuits to Sustainable Agriculture”, is particularly timely as the progressive integration of synthetic and designed biological systems is transforming biology and agriculture in the St. Louis region and beyond.

This symposium will focus on engineering plant, microbial, and ecological systems to deliver sustainable and novel solutions for agriculture; the introduction of novel pathways and traits; and the production of new biomolecules.  We will also feature several speakers who are developing novel tools and technologies to introduce synthetic circuits into microbial and plant systems.  Work in these areas will be highlighted in the context of recent advances in engineered biology at the level of pathways, organelles, organisms, and ecosystems.
