UC Berkeley launches Synthetic Biology Institute to advance research in biological engineering
Date:4/21/2011

BERKELEY An alliance of top researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, has formed the UC Berkeley Synthetic Biology Institute (SBI), advancing efforts to engineer cells and biological systems in ways that promise to transform technology in health and medicine, energy, the environment, new materials, and a host of other critical arenas.

The new institute aiming to create "an industrial revolution in biological engineering" is launching a collaborative effort with its first industry member, Agilent Technologies Inc., a leader in measurement technologies and products to advance science and engineering research. Agilent is helping to initiate SBI research with a multi-year, multi-million dollar commitment, including early access to Agilent technologies through the active participation of the company's research scientists and engineers.

SBI will be an important link in a constellation of research centers focused on synthetic biology at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), both of which have made the field a research priority. SBI is unique in its planned collaborations with leading companies, designed to translate leading research on biological systems and organisms efficiently into processes, products, and technologies to meet real-world demands.

"Berkeley has a history of leadership in emerging fields of research, and we are solidly invested in advancing synthetic biology," said UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau. "An exceptionally talented cadre of faculty is working at the interface of engineering and biosciences there is tremendous momentum in this area. Our new Synthetic Biology Institute, with the foundational support of Agilent Technologies, extends our capacity for success in a fascinating, globally important field."

Led by Berkeley's College of Engineering and College of Chemistry, with the support of other campus units, the new institute addresses a wide range of c
