About

Discover more about the exciting field of synthetic biology research that is evolving so quickly that it’s really hard to define. 

Meet scientists working on synthetic biology and explore research on how cyanobacteria can tell the time. 

Try hands-on activities like building clocks and jigsaws, then learn how this knowledge might help in developing new approaches to tackling problems like climate change.
