An infrastructure for platform technology in synthetic biology (Flowers consortium project)
July 1 2012 – June 30 2017
This project brings together a consortium of five UK universities (Imperial College, Cambridge, Edinburgh, LSE/KCL and Newcastle) to develop an integrated platform technology and an infrastructure for synthetic biology. The consortium will provide intellectual leadership, critical mass and synergy to address a range of synthetic biology research and its translation to industry. The Flowers Consortium is ongoing, and Innogenâ€™s role will be to work on the social dimensions of the project, including analysis of standardisation, infrastructure, translation and responsible innovation.
