How iBioFAB is building on changes in synthetic biology

In the concourse research lab of IGB, a robotic system is changing the face of synthetic biology.

Described as a one-of-a-kind “living foundry,” the system is a platform for automatic production and analysis of synthetic biological systems.

It’s called iBioFAB, which stands for Illinois Biological Foundry for Advanced Biomanufacturing, and it lies at the heart of IGB’s Biosystems Design research theme.
