Sustainable biosynthetic technologies for Africa
A Center of excellence in synthetic biology research, education, and biosecurity in Africa.
To be the leading SYNBIO innovators for sustainable solutions to great challenges in health, agriculture and environment in Africa.
Why Synthetic Biology
Synthetic biology promises to provide sustainable, low-cost, breakthrough technologies to many grand challenges of the modern society via innovations in agriculture, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, energy, and environmental conservation, crop improvement, microbial bio production.
We are a group of scientists, programmers and other professionals from Africa currently based in Uganda with a vision to have a healthy, safe, sustainable world through synthetic biology. Our mission is to be the leading innovators for sustainable and low cost solutions with breakthrough technologies to great challenges in health, agriculture and environment in Africa. Our areas of interest are as follows: biosensor and biomarker development, environment bioremediation and vaccine development among others. Our future prospects are to develop a synthetic biology research center of excellence in Africa, establish SynBio Africa hubs in different African nations and make medical advances in the above areas of interest
