June 25, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Far from limiting itself to the manipulation of existing genomes, synthetic biology aims to both redesign life and create the unnatural, in accordance with the principles of engineering. BIO-FICTION explores this emerging field with a film program and pannel discussion that focusses on the tension between science and fiction. Is Synthetic Biology grounded in reality or mere science-fiction?
