What is IDEA Bio?

IDEA bio is an NCRIS, Qld Government and UQ funded facility that offers Synthetic Biology services. It is an integrated space capable of providing cutting-edge synthetic biology services, offering high-throughput solutions for Australian researchers and businesses. IDEA bio offers innovative services to advance synthetic biology. We can help design the genetic changes needed to bring products from milligrams to kilograms. In essence, we take a concept idea and turn it into a reality. We have created a cell design studio to make biology useful. Just like an architectural Design Studio, but for cells.
