SHANGHAI -- Shanghai Synthetic Biology Innovation Center was unveiled Sunday, in a bid to promote innovation and development of this "future industry" of the eastern Chinese metropolis.

The center, jointly initiated by industry service institutions and synthetic biology innovation partners, will cooperate extensively with domestic and foreign scientific research institutions, non-profit organizations and leading enterprises to carry out global work in the field of synthetic biology, according to municipal science and technology commission.
