German Conference on Synthetic Biology (GCSB21) - Engineering Living Systems

13. - 17. September 2021 Online-Event Teaserbild

The German Conference on Synthetic Biology 2021 (GCSB 2021) is currently being organised as a double event taking place in Darmstadt (1-3 September 2021) and Munich (13-17 September 2021). GASB is organizer of the Darmstadt programme and the joint study group of GBM, GDCh, DBG and  DECHEMA is currently organising the Munich programme.

Expecting legal restrictions due to the Covid19 pandemic to be still in effect in September, the committee recently decided to change the programme of 13-17 September 2021 to a virtual conference format.

Paper submission to the GCSB programme of 13-17 September is open now.

Authors are kindly invited to submit abstracts of lectures and posters. The deadline for submissions to the lecture programme is 28 May 2021.

The programme will feature current research from various fields of synthetic biology:

  • Agricultural and environmental applications
  • Automation, bioinformatics, data science, and systems biology
  • Biomedical applications
  • Industrial applications
  • Methods and technologies (protein engineering, optogenetics, xenobiology,  genetic circuits, molecular biosensors, genome editing & synthesis)
  • SynBioArt
  • Smart Materials and synthetic protocells


Generous support by the Joachim-Herz-Stiftung enabling free registration of students is gratefully acknowledged.

Information about sponsoring or exhibition opportunities will be available soon on this page.
