Cybergenetics: A New Paradigm at the Frontier of Engineering Biology

What is Cybergenetics and how can it be used to understand and manipulate complex biological systems? In this talk, Prof. Mustafa Khammash will take his audience through this fascinating subject.

An Introduction to Cybergenetics


Professor Mustafa Khammash, who is a world leader in control theory and its applications to biology, will introduce the exciting new field of Cybergenetics in a semi-public talk. Inspired by control systems concepts in traditional engineering disciplines, Cybergenetics aims to control biological processes through the engineering of genetic control systems in living cells that function at the molecular scale. He will showcase the latest breakthroughs in this field and discuss its wide-ranging potential applications, focusing on industrial biotechnology and medical therapy. This talk aims to illuminate how Cybergenetics is redefining our approach to controlling biological processes.
