OpenPlant is a BBSRC-EPSRC Synthetic Biology Research Centre, part of the UK Synthetic Biology for Growth programme, and collaboration between the University of Cambridge, the John Innes Centre and the Earlham Institute.

The Centre brings together cutting-edge foundational technologies to pioneer development of open tools and innovation in agri-tech research, industrial biotechnology and bioengineering services. OpenPlant is developing predictive capacity that will provide designer solutions to address the major societal and environmental challenges of the 21st century. At the Forum we will discuss recent developments in the field, and have the opportunity to meet researchers from the OpenPlant community and further afield.

The first day of the OpenPlant forum will celebrate this summer's 27 OpenPlant Biomaker teams featuring snap progress reports and a showcase of low-cost, open-source hardware and software for biology.
