Adaptive Biosafety Assessment in synthetic biology

One of the issues frequently popping up in debates about synthetic biology (synbio) is the possibility of introducing new and yet unknown types of biological risks.

This topic was addressed in several SYNENERGENE activities, such as a workshop and a number of interviews.
