UK establishes three new synthetic biology research centers

Three new multidisciplinary research centres in synthetic biology will be established in Bristol, Nottingham and through a Cambridge/Norwich partnership, thanks to funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).


The £40M+ investment will be formally announced by Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts tonight at a BBSRC event in London to mark the achievements and impact of UK bioscience over the last 20 years.


The BBSRC/EPSRC Synthetic Biology Research Centres will receive funding over five years to boost national synthetic biology research capacity and ensure that there is diverse expertise to stimulate innovation in this area. The centres will: offer a strong collaborative culture; provide essential state-of-the-art equipment, facilities, trained researchers and technical staff; drive advancement in modern synthetic biology research; and develop new technologies.


Minister for Universities and Science David Willetts, said: “Synthetic biology is one of the most promising areas of modern science, which is why we have identified it as one of the eight great British technologies of the future. Synthetic biology has the potential to drive economic growth but still remains relatively untapped and these new centres will ensure that the UK is at the forefront when it comes to commercialising these new technologies.”


£10M was allocated to the synthetic biology research centres following the announcement of £600M capital investment for Research Councils in the autumn 2012 statement. BBSRC will fund just over 70% of the remaining costs and EPSRC is providing nearly 30%.

2014 Previewed by Isaac Asimov - in 1964!

In 1964, famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov ventured a guess at what you might find if you set foot inside the 2014 World Fair. Using his gift for envisioning future technology, Asimov’s predictions from 50 years out are both stunningly accurate and perhaps a little bit depressing. Here’s a look at what he got right:


  • One thought that occurs to me is that men will continue to withdraw from nature in order to create an environment that will suit them better.

  • Kitchen units will be devised that will prepare ‘automeals,’ heating water and converting it to coffee.

  • Complete lunches and dinners, with the food semiprepared, will be stored in the freezer until ready for processing.

  • The appliances of 2014 will have no electric cords, of course.

  • Much effort will be put into the designing of vehicles with ‘Robot-brains’.

  • There will be increasing emphasis on transportation that makes the least possible contact with the surface.

  • By 2014, only unmanned ships will have landed on Mars, though a manned expedition will be in the works and in the 2014 Futurama will show a model of an elaborate Martian colony.

  • For short-range travel, moving sidewalks (with benches on either side, standing room in the center) will be making their appearance in downtown sections.

  • In 2014, there is every likelihood that the world population will be 6,500,000,000 and the population of the United States will be 350,000,000.

  • Synchronous satellites, hovering in space will make it possible for you to direct-dial any spot on earth.

  • Communications will become sight-sound and you will see as well as hear the person you telephone.

  • In fact, one popular exhibit at the 2014 World’s Fair will be such a 3-D TV, built life-size, in which ballet performances will be seen.

  • Part of the General Electric exhibit today consists of a school of the future in which such present realities as closed-circuit TV and programmed tapes aid the teaching process.

  • Robots will neither be common nor very good in 2014, but they will be in existence.

  • The world of A.D. 2014 will have few routine jobs that cannot be done better by some machine than by any human being. Mankind will therefore have become largely a race of machine tenders.

  • Even so, mankind will suffer badly from the disease of boredom.

  • The lucky few who can be involved in creative work of any sort will be the true elite of mankind, for they alone will do more than serve a machine.

  • Indeed, the most somber speculation I can make about A.D. 2014 is that in a society of enforced leisure, the most glorious single word in the vocabulary will have become work!

It’s worth noting that, while quite impressive, Asimov didn’t get everything right. 2014 will most surely come and go without “jets of compressed air [that] will lift land vehicles off the highways.” He also predicted that the entire East Coast from Boston to Washington would merge into one large mega city, which seems unlikely at this point in time. But perhaps the most telling (and disheartening) is Asimov’s inaccurate notion that we’d even have a World’s Fair in 2014. But still, pretty good!
