Bottom-Up Synthetic Biology

University of Newcastle - Newcastle
Monday 8 July (10:00) - Tuesday 9 July 2013 (16:00)

Dr Anna Peacock is presenting an invited lecture at the Bottom-Up Synthetic Biology: Towards Molecular Assembly of Biomimetic Functional Materials.

Focussing on assembly and function of biomolecular and biomimetic materials, themes include:

  • chemical models for biological processes — replicating natural processes & improving on nature;
  • biological and bio-inspired catalysis;
  • bio-templating of modern materials;
  • constructing novel artificial biomimetics;
  • modelling of biomimetic recognition and function at all scales.
