Hi ,

This week’s digest is brought to you by Ganymede, the cloud infrastructure provider purpose-built for the life sciences and manufacturing industries. The company's Lab-as-Code technology integrates physical lab instruments, applications such as electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) and laboratory information management systems (LIMS), data pipelines, and third-party partners like contract research organizations (CROs) and contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) together in a single cloud data layer. Ganymede accelerates time to innovation by allowing scientists to automate the world around them using cloud-controlled data flows.

We’re really excited to announce SynBioBeta's new podcast series called The Inside Track. The topics that guide so much of our conference content make for such wonderful discussions that we thought...why not capture that and let others listen in!

In this first episode of the series, our Director of Content, Jeff Buguliskis, sat down with Dan Grushkin, Ginger Dosier, and Kit McDonnell to talk a little bit about Biodesign. These three "characters" really made his job a lot of fun. But don't let the jovial nature of this podcast fool you. These are some wicked smart folks who can break down a subject like Biodesign and get to the root of why it's important to pay attention to this topic.

Dan, Ginger, and Kit are also Track Chairs for the upcoming SynBioBeta 2024 Conference, so if you want to meet them in person and discuss biodesign more, you'll have to come to San Jose from May 6–9. 

SynBioBeta History

It’s been six years since I invited Hugh Goold, from the ARC Center of Excellence in Synthetic Biology at Macquarie University in Sydney, to California to present at SynBioBeta.  Now, his projects are starting to come together, and he and his colleagues just published a Cell Genomics paper describing the first of two 1Mb engineered chromosomes, as well as a historical perspective on advances in engineering algae. Amazing work and a fascinating paper. Make sure you check it out!
