About the India-EMBO Symposium Richard Feynman once famously remarked, “What I cannot create, I do not understand”. As engineers strive to create complex systems, biologists have strived to understand the evolved complexities of biological systems. This Symposium will bring together biologists, engineers, and theoreticians to discuss exciting advancements and exchange ideas and challenges in the field of synthetic biology. The invited speakers are leaders in the fields of synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, and microbial communities.
