Designing, debugging and compiling genetic code

The Downtown Speaker Series presents a free event:

Genome Compiler - Democratizing the Tools of Creation

Genome Compiler Corp. is building the next generation of computer-aided design tools for synthetic biology. In the age of Synthetic Biology, we need tools for designing, debugging and compiling genetic code; a genome compiler. Genome Compiler was Inspired by the breakthrough achievement of "booting up" a synthetic bacteria by using a human-assembled genome (the program that runs a cell) that took place in the J. Craig Venter Institute. Our vision is to democratize the tools of creation, unleashing innovation in biotechnology that will enable a more sustainable future.

Dr. Omri Amirav-Drory received his B.A in biology and Ph.D. in biochemistry from Tel-Aviv University. He then received the Fulbright post-doctoral fellowship and joined Prof. Axel T. Brunger.s lab at Stanford school of medicine & HHMI as a postdoctoral associate from September 2007 to September 2011. He is now the founder and CEO of Genome Compiler Corp (GCC) a venture in the synthetic biology space with a mission of enabling the design and creation of useful living things.

    Totally mind blowing. He demo'd an IDE for creating cells and you can edit the GATC pairs like source code, then order it from a company that creates the cell.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
