      Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School:
      "Biology meets Engineering and Computer Science"

      Taormina, Italy, June 15-19, 2014

      *Application Deadline: February 15 2014*

      Recent advances in DNA synthesis have increased our ability to build
      biological systems. Synthetic Biology aims at streamlining the design
      and synthesis of robust and predictable biological systems using
      engineering design principles. Designing biological systems requires a
      deep understanding of how genes and proteins are organized and
      interact in living cells: Systems Biology aims at elucidating the
      cellular organization at gene, protein, cell, tissue, organ and
      network level using computational and biochemical methods.

      The Synthetic and Systems Biology Summer School (SSBSS) is a
      full-immersion course on cutting-edge advances in systems and
      synthetic biology with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts.
      The school provides a stimulating environment for doctoral students,
      early career researches and industry leaders. Participants will also
      have the chance to present their results (Oral presentations or
      Posters) and to interact with their peers.
