SynBio Markets is launching in 2019...

So below you can read about what our clients are looking forward to with the launch event, and a little further down, what they have recently said about our other event, World Bio Markets, which took place 1-3 April this year
At Intrexon, we see synthetic biology as being the greatest industrial vector in all of time. The applications and potential are wide ranging and we are looking forward to sharing some of our innovations at SynBio Markets, including: the 1st FDA approved engineered food animal (fish), the 1st engineered apple approved in U.S. and Canada, the 1st bioengineered insect with commercial applications and the 1st natural gas bioconversion with engineered methanotroph.

Synthetic biology is one of our focus areas of research. The market is growing rapidly and increasing venture capital investments are directed at start-up companies in the space, some of which are our partners. We are pleased to see this event being arranged, attracting companies interested in exploring the possibilities the novel technologies offer for biobased production of a wider range of products and materials.

We are energized by the advances within synthetic biology both in protein design and strain engineering. We believe that it has the potential to disrupt the status quo and address the pressing global challenges of feeding 9 billion people by 2050, improving health, and addressing the environmental challenges of global warming, pollution and resource utilization.

There is no doubt that materials is the next wave for genomics. For example, we have only begun to scratch the surface of what is possible as we unlock the genetic code of plants and microbes, including microalgae and put it to work. Synthetic biology makes it possible for us to design new performance materials that aren't available today.

Synthetic Biology is an expanding market, lacking an event in Europe bringing investors, established industry, startups, regulators, and academics together to shape the SynBio’s future. GASB, the German Association for Synthetic Biology, is supporting SynBio Markets to fill the gap and to accelerate the SynBio economy! Personally, I am looking forward to the meeting to learn more about the different strategies to bring SynBio to the market and to contribute my knowledge about SynBio in Germany.

We feel that synthetic biology in Europe is extremely exciting. A lot of start-ups are developing interesting solutions. So, a conference in Europe is highly impactful because it allows the industry to exchange information, meet partners and investors, and help build the European synthetic biology community.

I am looking forward to this conference. We have always had a big conference in this space in the US, but not in Europe. I have been looking for a similar type of event to happen in Europe.

The event in Amsterdam has grown to a multiple networking opportunity to follow the latest trends in bio-related technologies, economies and commercial dynamics. On the one hand a broad spectrum of actors which reflects the complexities of the related issue and on the other hand a very well-organized team behind it offering structure and guidance to not get lost.
