About Synbiowatch


Synbiowatch exists to offer critical perspectives on the synthetic biology industry grounded in ethics and social, economic, and ecological justice. We offer resources, news and analysis of concerns around health and safety in the workplace and community, with a view toward monitoring the broad local and global impacts of convergence technologies. Synbiowatch is not affiliated with industry or academia, but responds to concerns from civil society at large.

 “It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” — Albert Einstein

The Synbiowatch website is maintained with the financial support of the Civil Society Forum of the European Union’s Synenergene project.
