iSSB - Institute of Systems & Synthetic Biology

 

Synthetic Biology has been defined as the design and construction of new biological parts, devices and systems (that do not already exist in the natural world) or the redesign and fabrication of existing, natural biological systems for useful purposes. Its goal is to learn how to engineer and build self-organizing systems that recapitulate biological functions and show new functions with industrial applications in environment, health care, and energy.

The Institute of Systems & Synthetic Biology (iSSB) is located in Évry (near Paris). The iSSB is a research unit of the University of Évry-Val-d'Essonne, CNRS and also granted by Genopole®. The Institute is structured into 5 research teams oriented toward the development of Systems and Synthetic Biology. Systems Biology integrates experimental, theoretical, and computational studies to model living systems. In this research area, the MEGA and Metamorphosys teams develop models and experimental methods for studying the structure, architecture, expression, and evolution of genomes. Synthetic Biology uses Systems Biology models to design, build, and test new biological circuits and devices (XenomeSynth-Bio and Bio-RetroSynth teams).

    Abolislogo.jpg iSSB is pleased to announce the creation of the spin-off Abolis . Abolis has already been awarded at two competitions: it is finalist at the 2030 World Innovation Challenge, and received a special prize at the Genopole's White Technologies competition.

    iSSB has received the Genopole award for Research Innovation, which rewards Genopole players achieving major scientific advances. This price has been awarded during the Genopole 15th anniversary day, after selection by an external jury composed of researchers, entrepreneurs and journalists. Please see the video.

    IronLogo.jpg * Congratulations to the iGEM-Evry 2013 team! The team launched by mSSB students and advised by iSSB members won the "human practice" price and a gold medal at the European final. It is one of the 2 French teams selected for the world final in Boston.
