We are excited to launch another high energy, action filled, synthetic biology conference this year in San Francisco. At SynBioBeta SF 2015, you’ll meet attendees from around the globe, learn best practices, and hear from industry thought leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs about the ever changing landscape of synthetic biology.
Join us for conversations on sector-specific progress ranging from research-enabling tools to low-cost DNA synthesis, scale-up of industrial biotech platforms and the growing importance of the organism industry. As an added bonus, we have extended the conference to two full days this year, which means more networking opportunities and additional chances to connect with the growing community.
This year in addition to having 11 thought enticing sessions and over 80+ industry leading speakers, we will be hosting two amazing new events and workshops this year:
Blue Sky Bio Competition – Where startups, industry, and academics can compete to win over $500k in prizes. During the event, special guest and Angel Investor, Esther Dyson will introduce the top three contenders on stage.
1st Annual Engineering Biology Awards – This awards ceremony has been developed to give special recognition to individuals that are making great strides to shape the synthetic biology industry. This year we are honored to have, NASA Astronaut, Catherine Coleman, hosting the awards.
Workshops – This year we are delighted to announce that workshops will be available to attend during the event. These featured workshops will be taking place during the session breaks and are free, but you must register ahead of time to attend them as seating is limited.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
