Bio-Design Week including IWBDA and Workshops
IWBDA 2023 is now part of the newly introduced Bio Design Week - an annual event that will be hosted in Boston, MA (USA). Details for Bio Design Week and IWBDA can be found on the IWBDA website.
Like previous years, the SBOL community will be organising the two workshops as a part of IWBDA.
Join us for the 15th annual International Workshop on Bio-Design Automation (IWBDA) meeting, in Boston, September 11-14, 2023. This year, IWBDA will take place during Bio Design Week and will include presentation and poster talks selected from submitted abstracts, Birds of a Feather discussions, and breakout sessions on selected topics. We aim to bring together academic researchers and industry partners to push the field of bio-design automation for synthetic biology forward.
The field of biology is still lagging behind the industry when it comes to implementation and adoption of computational and digital solutions. This is primarily because it is extremely difficult to offer a one-size-fits-all solution to engineer biology. Some BDA solutions serve as templates for a larger problem, but, to make it usable in a practical setting, the solutions often have to be redesigned for bespoke biological workflows. Without understanding the requirements of the broader synthetic biology community, it is hard to design a solution that can have a wider impact.
Increasing the efficiency of biological processes and workflows with biodesign automation is a continuous journey that requires fresh exchange of ideas. It is crucial for the BDA community to have a forum where they can collaborate, gather new perspectives, and understand the requirements of the broader synthetic biology community. IWBDA provides this forum for cross-disciplinary discussion, with the aim of seeding and fostering collaboration between the researchers from the synthetic biology, systems biology, and design automation communities.
