The bioeconomy – economic activity built on biology – is growing rapidly across the globe. New technology to predict and control biology is driving change in industries from pharmaceuticals to energy.

Core to commercialising any successful technology is the ability to measure and characterise. As our ambitions to manipulate biology grow, the challenge of how to measure such complex systems also grows. How do we characterise the biology products of the future? How hard can it be?

This seminar investigates issues in measuring biological systems and discusses new techniques – such as using biology to measure biology – that support truly smarter products.
