Our community has made extraordinary progress toward developing a number of promising vaccine candidates to provide protection against COVID-19 disease.  Because of the pandemic, we have postponed the face-to-face Microbial Engineering II conference to September 19-23, 2021 in Albufeira, Portugal. To keep the community up to date, this webinar will focus on a variety of programs based either on microbial platforms or cell free synthesis. Each speaker will entertain participant questions.
