Genopole invests both thought and actions in the field of synthetic biology.

The biocluster seeks not only to forward research, teaching and industrial application, but also to organize debates on ethical issues in this field.

Genopole harbors more researchers and industrials specialized in synthetic biology than anywhere else in France.

Synthetic biology is a new, highly multidisciplinary (at the intersection of biology, mathematics, computer sciences, physics and chemistry) field based on engineering sciences.

It represents a new scientific paradigm for understanding life and has vast potential for applications in health, medicine, the environment and agriculture/food sciences
