Sounds like you need to watch a Video of the Synthetic Biology symposium at the Edinburgh Science Festival

I’ve called it a symposium, simply because it’s an impressively delivered set of (visually aided) presentations, by well respected speakers and a live studio audience.

See the sidebar below for links to the other ten parts.

The ‘chair’ for the event is the BBC’s irrepressable radio science presenter Quentin Cooper of BBC Radio 4 Material World fame.

The title of the debate is:

The presenters are:

The event was run in conjunction with Life Sciences Scotland
