GASB conference

German Conference on Synhtetic Biology

Every year Synthetic Biology advances and brings forth new research results, techniques and applications with the potential to change our lives. To share these insights, exchange ideas and discuss views on important topics regarding the field, the GASB7 conference brings together interested members from all corners of the field.


The SynBio World Cafe   |   June 2023


This annual event series brings together key players from academia and industry to discuss about the current state and the future of Synthetic Biology in Germany. The informal format is the ideal environment for new relationships and collaborations to develop and deepen. This year GASB collaborates with Sprin-D, the German federal agency for disruptive Innovations and the Centre for Synthetic Biology at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

Our Projects and Collaborations

What is Synbio?

Synthetic Biology is a young field of research with the goal to turn biology into an engineering discipline. For that it focuses on the standardization of bioengineering and uses state of the art tools like gene synthesis or CRISPR-Cas9 to design and build biological systems, with altered or completely new functions.

Mission and Vision

The German Association for Synthetic Biology (GASB) has set the goal to establish Synthetic Biology as a key discipline and to serve as the association for this young research area in Germany.

To achieve this goal, GASB is organizing events like conferences and workshops, is providing a platform for dialogue within the scientific community as well as with the society and is taking position for Synthetic Biology in Germany.

We aim to foster responsible research and applications in Synthetic Biology as well as the dialogue in a social as well as a political context.
