Café Synthetique is the monthly meetup for the Cambridge synthetic biology community with informal talks, discussion and pub snacks.

This time we are fortunate to welcome two speakers at the cutting edge of synthetic biology research with presentations on tools to shape evolution and literally rewrite the code of life - exciting stuff!

"Throw everything at it and see what sticks: Directed evolution as a tool for Synthetic Biology"

Dr Vitor Pinheiro (UCL)

"Reimagining Watson & Crick's 'secret of life': artificial genetic polymers and xenobiology"

Prof. Alexander Taylor (Concordia University, Montreal, Canada) with his presentation
