1. The Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (hereinafter referred to as the “Advanced Institute”) was jointly established by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Shenzhen Municipal People’s Government and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2006. It implements board management, explores innovations in systems and mechanisms, and aims at world-class industrial research The Institute is committed to building a new type of scientific research institution that is in line with international academic standards and the industry in the Pearl River Delta. After 14 years of innovation and development, the Advanced Institute has established 8 research institutes and formed a scientific research team of more than 3,300 people, including more than 600 “returnees”. Accumulatively undertaken scientific research funding of nearly 8 billion yuan, applied for nearly 9,000 patents, published more than 10,000 papers, formed a “four-in-one” innovation system integrating scientific research, education, industry, and capital, and has established a model for new domestic research institutions. The Advanced Institute focuses on the field of IBT (the integration of information technology IT and biotechnology BT), and explores the development path from engineering to technology to science. In biomedical engineering, brain science, synthetic biology, and biology Medicine, advanced electronic materials, robotics, artificial intelligence, advanced computing and other fields have produced a number of original achievements that have an impact in the academic field and promote technological innovation in the industry. 
On November 16, 2018, the Shenzhen Municipal People’s Government and the Chinese Academy of Sciences signed the “Agreement on Cooperation and Joint Construction of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shenzhen University of Technology” in Shenzhen. The Shenzhen Advanced Institute will build the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shenzhen University of Technology (tentative name). The Advanced Institute will seize historical opportunities, aim at the forefront of international science and technology, forward-looking layout of strategic emerging industries, and continue to promote the integration of science and education and innovative development in multiple directions. 

2. The Institute of Synthetic Biology (hereinafter referred to as the “Institute of Synthesis”) was established in December 2017. It is the seventh institute of Shenzhen Advanced Institute. It adopts the engineering design concept of synthetic biology and focuses on artificial life components and gene circuits. The research on synthetic reconstruction of, biological devices, multi-cell systems, etc., aims to reveal the essence of life and explore the basic laws of life activities. The Synthetic Institute actively carries out market-oriented and industrialization-oriented technology transformation, and strives to develop into an internationally influential synthetic biology research and development base and industrial innovation center. By creating an open and cross-cooperative platform, the Institute of Synthesis brings together young backbones in the field of synthetic biology at home and abroad and leading scientists at home and abroad to create a young, energetic, multidisciplinary, cutting-edge innovation team.
3. The center rate of synthetic biology of materials belongs to the “Institute of Synthesis”: In the past 20 years, the controlled synthesis and frontier characterization of biomaterials at the molecular and nano level have developed rapidly. In recent years, the ability to read and write multi-level information on genes, proteins, metabolism, and epigenetics in biological systems has also become increasingly rapid. These developments provide unique opportunities for scientists and engineers in different fields to cooperate and exchange in the same field in the traditional sense.Material synthetic biology came into being as a new interdisciplinary under this background. On the one hand, it uses tools and strategies in materials science and other engineering fields to discover, regulate, and develop new functions of biological systems; on the other hand, it also borrows concepts from the field of engineering biology and uses the characteristics of sustainable development of biological systems to develop New materials that can satisfy public interest and social interests. Relying on the Advanced Institute of Synthesis, the Center for Materials Synthetic Biology will strive to build a first-class scientific research center that integrates life, material, and engineering, and integrates production, education and research, and will strive to become international and domestic original ideas and talents in this field The birthplace of training and scientific research. The current key research areas of the center include (1) “living” functional materials; (2) semiconductor synthetic biology technology; (3) advanced biological materials and their applications in the fields of biomedicine, bioenergy and bioelectronics.
