I.About Us
The Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT) was jointly established by CAS, the Shenzhen municipal government and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in February 2006. With 8 institutes and numerous other labs and facilities, SIAT aims to enhance the innovative capacity of the equipment manufacturing and service industries in the Guangdong-Hong Kong region, promote the development of emerging industries possessing their own proprietary intellectual property, and become a world-class industrial research institute.

The Center for Synthetic Biochemistry (CSB) in the Shenzhen Institutes for Advanced Technology is a new center dedicated to the development of synthetic biochemistry that can be used to produce nearly any organic molecule. The CSB is led by Professor Jay Keasling, one of the leaders in the fields of synthetic biology and metabolic engineering, and is part of the newly created Institute for Synthetic Biology (iSynBio). 

The CSB will have a team of a dozen principle investigators in plant biology, microbial biology (including microbiomes), bioinformatics, in vitro biology, synthetic biology, systems biology, metabolic engineering, and analytical chemistry who will be devoted to discovering new natural biochemistry in living systems (plants, microorganisms, animals, insects), developing new enzymes to catalyze unnatural biochemistry, and engineering microorganisms, microbial communities, plants and in vitro systems to produce pharmaceuticals, commodity and specialty chemicals, materials, and biofuels. It is envisioned that each PI will have a team of approximately 20 researchers (post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, research assistants) and that PIs will collaborate on large projects that could not be accomplished by a single laboratory.
