The focus of this interactive workshop is to discuss how the integration of multiple OMICS platforms, automated workflows, advanced informatics approaches, predictive scale-up and large scale fermentation capabilities can be harnessed to transition from hypotheses to pre-commercial applications. We will discuss multiple examples, describe how the unique constellation of platforms and resources under the Berkeley Lab umbrella are structured, and the different models for companies and other entities to access these capabilities.
Presented by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab): The Joint Genome Institute, The Agile BioFoundry (ABF), and The Advanced Biofuels (and Bioproducts) Process Development Unit (ABPDU); Genomatica and LanzaTech. Moderated by Vonnie Estes.
