This is how the film makers describe their documentary: Synthetic Biology is an emerging field in at the intersection of biotechnology, information technology and biochemistry with the aim to make biology easier to engineer. But what exactly are synthetic biologists doing? And who are the people behind the technology planning to design and engineer living material?
This film takes you on a journey around Europe showing current developments in this field, portraying five outstanding research projects - funded by the European Science Foundation - and the scientists that drive them.
