Systems of life are being harnessed for progress much as digital systems have been for the last 50 years. That progress isn’t affecting just health and drug development, it’s revolutionizing food and agriculture, energy, even manufacturing. Our first Techonomy Bio event aims to help all of us to understand how progress in bio and life sciences will change society and business.
New sources of energy, disease fighting bacteria, genetic road maps, synthetic foods, pollution detecting organisms, growing products, personal cancer cures, personalized anything cures, changing one’s DNA, reversing extinction, extending life – all are possibilities.
