Metabolic Design 2011 will feature global innovators on the forefront of synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, genomics and beyond, highlighted by a special keynote presentation from the renowned San Diego research firm Synthetic Genomics.

The Algae World Summit will kickoff with a Pre-Summit Workshop titled Algae 101 on the morning of May 23. Algae 101 will offer a comprehensive look at emergent algal segments, covering feedstocks, R&D, production and commercialization, along with a map of key players in the algal community.
