Synthetic Biology is still a very vague term from the perspective of the general public. People are usually also not aware of how synthetic biology developments can directly influence their lives. That is why Copernicus Science Centre Biological Laboratory in Warsaw organised 5, free and open to the public, synthetic biology workshops as part of SYNENERGENE Project. The workshops took place during Przemiany Festival entitled “Temptation of Immortality” (1-4 September 2016) and the main aim of the meetings was to popularise the knowledge of synthetic biology among members of the society.
