We invite you to imagine the future of our bodies. THEMES The workshop will be focused on the themes of the Bodyware expedition : SENSE IDENTITY BE WELL BE MORE PERFORMANCE HEALTH BEAUTY This workshop aims to cat between the actors of digital in order to productively wor expedition AGENDA Friday March 14: - Inspiring talks - Bio-design Exploration: disco brainstorm,… - Working groups: scenario de Saturday March 15: - Working groups: product de Tuesday March 18: - Projects presentation and re CONTACT Thierry Marcou tmarcou@fing.org Justine Coubard-Millot jcoubardmillot@fing.org Helena Shomar helena.shomar@gmail.com Marguerite Benony marguerite.benony@gmail.com
  5. 5. SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY AND DESIGN “designing a genetic circuit” “creating new proteins by rational design” “designing an experiment” “designing DNA fragments”
  6. 6. if [A]>threshold then produce B; produce C; end Promoter Ribosome Binding Site Ribosome Binding Site Gene B Gene C Terminator A A A A A Produce proteins B and C in response to molecule A DESIGNING A GENE CIRCUIT
  7. 7. DESIGNING MORE COMPLEX SYSTEMS Mycoplasma laboratorium “simple” genetic circuits complex gene networks
  8. 8. SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY AND DESIGN Synthetic Biology ! designing systems to be: simple robust efficient bio-safe ... Other areas of design ! designing objects to be: easy to use sustainable practical eco-friendly ... imposed constraints: part availability non-compatibility ethics ... imposed constraints: material availability non-compatibility guidelines and regulations ... + creativity! + creativity!
  9. 9. SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY AS A NEW AREA OF DESIGN finding new applications product development CAD tool development art process design collaborations
