2nd International Synthetic Yeast Genome (Sc2.0) Consortium Meeting, London, UK, July 12, 2013

We are pleased to announce that this summer on Friday 12th July, we will be hosting the 2nd International Synthetic Yeast Genome (Sc2.0) Consortium Meeting here in the UK at Imperial College London. This day-long meeting is now open for registration.  Notably it will be held the day after the SB6.0 meeting, so it will be easy to attend both.

The Synthetic Yeast Genome Project (Sc2.0) is synthesizing and constructing a modified version of the S. Cerevisiae genome to test biological questions and give new functions.

We will be bringing those around the world involved in the Sc2.0 project together to discuss progress on the synthetic S. cerevisiae genome and opportunities to use the strains and tools of the project. This meeting is open to all interested in Sc2.0 and we encourage you (and your colleagues) to register if you”d like to attend.


Rumor has it microbrew beer samples will be available – as it should be for a yeast meeting. See you in London?
