Topic for the 17th: The future of sustainable biotechnology

Light-driven biosynthesis of high value compounds using photosynthetic organisms

By Thiyagarajan Gnanasekaran

Micro-algae have been the inspiration for many experiments at Biologigaragen. From Science to Technology to Art, these microbes have gained a lot of interest from the community. This month, our guest-speaker will tell us about the impact of algae on the biotech industry. Algae provide a more sustainable alternative to other organisms and are being used to generate high-value biochemicals. If you have an interest in Algae, biotech or synthetic biology, you should definitely attend.

About the speaker:

Thiyagarajan is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen. He has seven years of research experience in engineering metabolic pathways in E.coli, cyanobacteria and higher plant chloroplasts. His areas-of-interest includes synthetic biology, photosynthesis, plant chloroplasts and cyanobacteria.

Other news:

We have some exciting announcements at this event, and a lot of new things to get involved in.

As always, we guarantee interesting conversations on biology, new insights into biohacking and yes, Beers!
