The Sierra Systems and Synbio Symposium (S4) is an exciting new opportunity for undergraduate students to present their research and network with students from universities in Northern California and Nevada.

We are very excited to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Gloria Brar. Dr. Brar is an assistant professor in the Molecular and Cell Biology Department at UC Berkeley.

The symposium is co-organized by the UNR Department of Biochemistry, Synberc and the UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology with additional sponsorship provided by the UNR College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, the UNR College of Science, and the RNA Center for Systems Biology.
