Second Central US Synthetic Biology Workshop

@University of Wisconsin-Madison on September 12th and 13th, 2019

Our goal was to create a recurring workshop that brings together synthetic biology researchers and companies from institutions in the Central US. These meetings could help identify areas where we could work across groups, and between academia, industry, and government, on moonshot research opportunities and to foster the emergence of a vibrant synthetic biology bioeconomy in the Central US.
