Synthetic Biology Foundry

NUS Synthetic Biology Foundry represents a hallmark of synthetic biology research in driving foundational science towards translational clinical and industrial biotechnology applications. Equipped with state-of-the-art robotic system that is interfaced with various high throughput analytical instruments, the Foundry enables systematic (re)designing, building, testing and learning of synthetic biological systems on a highly efficient, automated manufacturing platform. Working together with our Scientific and Industrial Advisory Boards, and collaborators from the Global Synthetic Biology Laboratory, we have developed the Foundry to meet the rigorous standards and technical needs of the synthetic biology community. By fostering advanced research through international collaborations, the Foundry aims to become a central hub for cutting-edge synthetic biology research in Asia.
