2nd Annual Engineering Biology Award Recipients:

On October 4th-5th, 2016 during the SynBioBeta SF 2016 Conference, we will be bringing together the synthetic biology community to recognize excellence in the industry for the 2nd Annual Engineering Biology Awards. We invite the synthetic biology community to join us as we reward individuals that are making great strides to shape the landscape of the industry.

Dr. Dan Gibson

Dan Gibson
SGI-DNA

The “Foundational Technology Award” goes to Dr. Dan Gibson, Co-Founder of Synthetic Genomics Inc. Dr. Gibson developed a technique to allow for several inserts to be simultaneously assembled in a single reaction that takes as few as 15 minutes, allowing for the rapid generation of very large constructs. Since its invention in 2009, the Gibson Assembly® method rapidly spread throughout the world and has attracted interest from both the academic and commercial life sciences community due to its ease-of-use, flexibility and robustness. The technique enabled Synthetic Genomics, Inc. and the J. Craig Venter Institute to synthesize a complete bacterial genome in 2008, create the first synthetic cell in 2010, and in 2016 generate a minimal bacterial genome and engineer a completely new chassis organism called VMax.

Dr. Drew Endy

Drew Endy
Stanford

The “Global Innovation Award” goes to Dr. Drew Endy, Associate Professor of Bioengineering at Stanford University. Dr. Endy was named one of the 75 most influential people of the 21st century by Esquire magazine. He chaired the DARPA Synthetic Biology study that developed the first roadmap for systematically advancing the engineering of living matter in addition to founding the BioBricks Foundation in 2006. Since then Dr. Endy has played many key roles including the co-founding of Gen9 in 2009, being recognized by the White House for the BioBrick Public Agreement in 2013, and in 2016 co-founded JIMB, a partnership between Stanford University and NIST to advance synthetic biology via sustained work in biometrology.

Dr. Christopher Voigt

Christopher Voigt
MIT

For his mentorship and support of so many students and the nurturing of an industry, the “Entrepreneurial Leadership Award” goes to Dr. Christopher Voigt, Professor of Biological Engineering at MIT. Dr. Voigt has served on the science advisory boards of DSM, Bolt Threads, Pivot Bio, Synlogic, Amyris, Zymergen, Biomillenia, Senti Biosciences and Twist Bioscience. Dr. Voigt is the Co-Director of the Synthetic Biology Center and Co-founder of the MIT-Broad Foundry. His lab is developing a programming language for cells and applying these tools to problems in biotechnology. His students and postdocs have gone on to found companies such as Bolt Threads, Industrial Microbes, Pivot Bio, Asilomar Bio, 20n and gone on to work at Synlogic, Eligo Biosciences, Novo Nordisk Foundation, Lattice Automation, Pronutria, Sample6, Ginkgo Bioworks, Autodesk, and Dupont.

Workshops

If you’re a registered attendee of SynBioBeta SF 2016 don’t miss your chance to sign up for the complimentary workshops that will be available on October 4th and 5th. From getting an in-depth look at gene synthesis services and CAD/CAM platforms to CRISPR library design and getting the most of your Robotic Cloud Lab, these workshops will give you an inside peek into the tools and tech from leading industry providers. Space is limited so make sure to register soon to secure your seat.

Day 1  – Tuesday, October 4th

Gigabase Is the New Megabase: How Mass Quantities of DNA Can Change Your Research
Company: Gen9 | Location: Room I | Time: 2:20 pm
This workshop will demonstrate how mass quantities of synthetic DNA can collapse your design-build-test cycle to get you to your results faster and more cost-effectively than ever before. You will learn how synthetic biology industry leaders are changing the way they think about the utilization of gene synthesis services in their research.

The Information Technology Backbone for Synthetic Biology
Company: TeselaGen | Location: Room H | Time: 2:20 pm
TeselaGen is building the Information Technology backbone for Synthetic Biology. TeselaGen’s seamless CAD/CAM platform is built for secure, scalable deployments at companies both large and small. TeselaGen’s customers range from thousands of small academic research labs and start-up companies all the way to very large fortune 50 clients like Dow-Dupont. Join us for a demonstration of how TeselaGen’s cloud based “Mind to Molecule” platform can be used to help get your great synthetic biology ideas out of your head and into your hands very quickly and at low cost. Let us show you how TeselaGen’s computer aided design/build/edit platform for synthetic biology can accelerate your research and greatly speed time to market.

Day 2  – Wednesday, October 5th

Seed Funding for Startups
Organization: NSF | Location: Room H | Time: 10:45 am
Learn how your small company can get funding for research and development. The National Science Foundation’s Small Business Innovation Research program supports innovative startups with non-dilutive funding, moving discoveries out of the lab into the market. Visit www.nsf.gov/SBIR

Designing DNA with Genetic Constructor
Organization: Autodesk | Location: Room I | Time: 10:45 am
The BioNano Research Group at Autodesk, in collaboration with the Edinburgh Genome Foundry, has developed an extensible, open source, cloud CAD tool to drive biological design and complex DNA construction. The current software toolbox for genetic design offers solutions that are either relatively good but too expensive for scientists unless they are at large companies, or low cost but relatively low powered and quite limited. A different approach is necessary as more scientists want to design and build higher numbers of increasingly complex constructs. In this workshop, we will demo the Genetic Constructor to the SBB community. We will showcase some of its capabilities and explore the Genotype Specification Language (GSL) integration. GSL developed by Amyris allows facile incorporation of parts from a library of cloned DNA constructs and from the “natural” library of parts in fully sequenced and annotated genomes. We will also discuss future directions, and illustrate how to interact with the tool from a biology and a software development perspective.

Twist Think Big, Screen Once – Genome-Scale Editing with Custom CRISPR Libraries
Company: Twist Bioscience | Location: Room H | Time: 3:00 pm
CRISPR genome editing has gained a lot of attention in the last few years due to the efficiency and specificity by which it is able to introduce changes to the genome. This workshop will provide an overview on CRISPR library design techniques as well as discuss the impact of high quality DNA synthesis on enabling accurate editing. Specific examples of how these libraries are used in translational research will be provided to highlight the potential applications towards development of novel molecular therapeutics.

How to Transcriptic
Company: Transcriptic | Location: Room I | Time: 3:00 pm
From concept to results in 3 easy steps; how to get the most out of your Robotic Cloud Lab.

The American physicist Richard Feynman once said: ‘What I cannot create, I do not understand’. With that inspiration, we set out to attain a deeper understanding of life by assembling it ourselves. Over the past 15 years, the teams at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) and Synthetic Genomics, Inc. (SGI) have been developing tools to design whole genomes, synthesize and assemble them in the lab, and install them into a living cell. Their goal was not just to elucidate the genetic components required for life, but also to establish the capacity to create organisms custom-tailored to specific industrial applications. Progress towards these goals will be discussed.
