We are SynBio.Oxford: the Oxford University Society of Synthetic Biology. We represent a growing community of Oxford students who share a passion for Synthetic Biology (SynBio). We regularly meet, share ideas and inspire each other about the past and future of this exciting field.
We promote Synthetic Biology within Oxford University and the wider region, while also acting as a bridge between students and academics.
Our aims include:
All of our events are free for anyone to attend.
The society was initially named SynOx, and one of its key aims was the establishment of a team for the iGEM competition. As Oxford entered such a team for the first time in 2014, the focus of the society shifted more towards arranging events, and the society name was changed from SynOx to SynBio.Oxford.
We are proudly sponsored by Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT).
