Modularity, functionality and rational design are properties that constitute the essence of synthetic biology. However, these properties and goals are not unique to synthetic biology research alone. Jakob Schweizer will draw in his talk the unexpected comparison to the architectural style of Bauhaus, which marks the 100th anniversary of its creation this year. Bauhaus is characteristic for its minimalism and functionalism, and common grounds and boundaries will be discussed in Brno, a city hosting Villa Tugendhat, one of the most prototypical and at the same time outstanding examples of Bauhaus architecture in Europe.

Stay tuned, more speakers to be announced in the next few days! And don’t forget to register to the EuSynBioS 2019 symposium!
