BioDesign research

Synthetic biology is the rational design and engineering of biological systems for useful purposes.

BBI encompasses synthetic biology and biodesign research and innovation across the University of Bristol and with our key collaborators.

Researchers across the BBI draw together a broad base of theoretical and experimental expertise across the life, physical and engineering sciences to address the understanding, design and engineering of biomolecules, biomolecular systems, and bioinspired devices.

There are over 100 active biodesign projects taking place across the University. These involve academics, researchers and students from many different disciplines.

Our work is oriented around the following themes:
