Synthetic Biology Australasia (SBA) is a non-profit society that aims to support the growing synthetic biology research field in Australia, New Zealand, and the broader Australasian region. SBA operates as a community hub to develop collaborations within academia and between academia and industry; and to engage in public outreach, education, and training in synthetic biology. Membership is open to all interested stakeholders, and can be purchased here.
We are grateful to our Founding Sponsors for recognising the significance of Synthetic Biology in Australia and New Zealand and providing the financial support to establish SBA.
