SynSignal coordinator Horst Vogel and his team at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have elucidated for the first time how a notoriously elusive serotonin receptor (5-HT3) functions with atom-level detail through computer simulation. This so-called “molecular dynamics simulation” uses the structure of 5-HT3 that Vogel’s lab uncovered in 2014 to accurately depict the structural...
An overview of the SynSignal project is now available on CommBeBiz, a platform that works with FP7 and H2020 projects and aims to provide a connection from bioeconomy research to the business world. They provide a range of support actions to their members such as networking, training and capacity development, business coaching as well as helping on a better visibility of the projects and...

In the first round of calls for ERC Advanced Grants under the 'excellent science' pillar of Horizon 2020, 190 scientists have been chosen to receive funding from the European Research Council. One of those prestigious grants will be awarded to SynSignal PI Luis Serrano (CRG) for his project titled “MYCOCHASSIS - Engineering of a minimal bacterial therapeutic chassis”. By combining bioinformatics,...
From June 21st to 23rd, EMBL in Heidelberg held a symposium titled “Enabling Technologies for Eukaryotic Synthetic Biology Meeting”. It aimed at providing a platform for interdisciplinary discussions on novel enabling technologies for synthetic biology in eukaryotic cells and facilitating exchange of ideas and new multi-disciplinary collaborations. Editors from the Journal Molecular Systems...
