    Synthetic biology marries biological science to engineering principles.  It aims to transform traditional biology into a field where genes, genomes, metabolic pathways, cells, and even organisms may be designed and constructed rapidly and inexpensively.  Synthetic biology challenges the law in areas such as intellectual property, open innovation, ownership, biosafety, and biosecurity.  A panel of scientists and legal scholars with expertise in synthetic biology issues will discuss the current and future landscapes of the law of synthetic biology.
