The 11th Conference of China iGEMer Community

The Conference of China iGEMer Community (CCiC) is the annual meet up for the China iGEMers, aiming at providing a platform for resource sharing, mutual learning, and exchange among participating iGEM teams and young synthetic biology enthusiasts in China. Since its inception in 2014, CCiC has played a pivotal role in maintaining the positive development of the community, serving as a national exchange summit related to synthetic biology competitions in China, and as an important academic communication platform for young synthetic biology enthusiasts in China. It has made significant contributions across academia, industry, and research, receiving widespread acclaim. Today, CCiC has become one of the largest academic conferences for university students in China. The conference brings together iGEM teams from across China to exchange project designs and progress, engage in intellectual discussions, and receive targeted questions and suggestions from guests and judges. Additionally, there will have wonderful lectures from experts and scholars in the field of synthetic biology.

 

This year, CCiC will be held in Suzhou with the theme of SynBio Nexus. The event is hosted by Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University, organized by XJTLU Wisdom Lake Academy of Pharmacy and the iGEM XJTLU-CHINA team, and guided by the Youth Working Group of the Synthetic Biology Branch of the Chinese Society of Biotechnology, the Shenzhen Synthetic Biology Association Engineering Biology Youth Enthusiast Association, and the CCiC Executive Committee. The conference aims to gather young researchers, educators, and practitioners in the field of synthetic biology in China to explore how synthetic biology, as a central node of interdisciplinary science, connects foundational innovation, practical impact, and future application scenarios. The goal is to drive the resolution of global issues, propel emerging industries, and forecast its profound impact on the long-term development of the socio-economic landscape.
