Invited Speaker: Mustafa Khammash


Mustafa Khammash from ETH Zurich visited the Synthetic Biology Summer Course. Amazing talk demonstrating the principles of control theory applied to synthetic biology. Presentation included an interactive demonstration of the principles of a proportional–integral–derivative controller (PID controller) using a lego robot. We then heard about brand new work in creating a synthetic controller for biology using the principle of biomolecular sequestration.
