Synthetic Biology

Since 2005, the Forum for Genetic Research has regularly addressed the topic of synthetic biology. Which chances and risks are linked to this emerging research field? Which ethical and societal questions should be considered? Are there new legal guidelines that are required? To address these questions, the Forum engages in a dialogue with science and politicians, authorities and the interested public.
