Institute for Synthetic Biology Research (iSynBio) was established in December 2017, it was formerly known as the Center of Synthetic Biology Engineering Research. The Institute's focus includes the engineering of synthetic components and multicellular systems, with the ultimate goal of deciphering the essence and fundamental laws of life. Eight PI groups have joined forces to become a young, multi-disciplinary, and innovative team. Our faculty include some of the world's leading scientists as guest professors, and we maintain close connections with other groups within China and around the world. iSynBio is making efforts to transform market and industry-oriented technologies. We are striving to become the center for synthetic biology research and industrial innovation within the Pearl River Delta, and for the entire nation.
