SINERGY

Synthetic biology is a maturing scientific discipline that combines science and engineering in order to design and build new biological parts, devices and systems. Synthetic biology offers enormous opportunities to benefit society with promising applications in areas such as energy, healthcare and the environment. Launched in September 2016, the Singapore Consortium for Synthetic Biology, SINERGY aims to consolidate Singapore’s capabilities in synthetic biology and harness synergies across industry sectors to create a vibrant and globally connected bio-based economy in Singapore. Efforts to foster interactions and co-development between the industry, universities and research institutes will encourage user-inspired research, augment manpower development, as well as speed up the translation of expertise in synthetic biology for industry applications. SINERGY is supported by the National Research Foundation and hosted at the National University of Singapore.
