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 4 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 team develops models and experimental methods for studying the structure, architecture, and expression of genomes. Synthetic Biology uses Systems Biology models to design, build, and test new biological circuits and devices (XenomeSynth-Bio and Bio-RetroSynth teams).

The BioSynSys 2015 Conference on Synthetic and Systems Biology will take place on September 7-10, 2015, in Paris (University Paris-Diderot, Building Buffon, Paris 13e).

igem-Evry-2015The iGEM-Evry-2015 team was launched by mSSB students and is being hosted by iSSB. The team is engineering innovative and promising new biological systems for modulating the immune system.
