ABOUT ASIAN SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY
ASSOCIATION

Asian Synthetic Biology Association (ASBA) is an international association of synthetic biologists centering on Asia. The first ASBA meeting will be held in Jeju island, Republic of Korea in 2018. ASBA 2018 focuses on recent developments in the field of synthetic biology, which is a rapidly emerging research field and provides a systematic framework for the engineering of biological systems.
New frameworks, new tool development, and the application of these frameworks/tools to overcome challenges in the broad biotechnology area will be the main theme of the meeting. The attendees of ASBA meeting are invited only to ensure high quality lectures, as well as close and intensive interactions among the attendees participating in this meeting.
