[Image appears of Professor Claudia Vickers talking to the camera and text appears: Professor Claudia Vickers, Director Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform, CSIRO]
Professor Claudia Vickers: Synthetic Biology is basically recoding life using DNA.
[Image changes to show a split circle and images of different CSIRO activities flash through in either half of the circle and then the circle morphs into the CSIRO logo on a white screen]
[Images move through to show Dr Cathy Foley talking to the camera, a close view of a plastic tray, a researcher placing the tray into a machine, and a machine filling a tray of test tubes, and text appears: Dr Cathy Foley, Australia’s Chief Scientist]
Dr Cathy Foley: It will provide us a way to rapidly develop engineered biological components that can be used for a whole range of new applications.
[Image changes to show Dr Kym Baker talking to the camera and text appears: Dr Kym Baker, General Manager, Patheon Biologics]
Dr Kym Baker: That allows us to replace traditional techniques with more environmentally friendly future proof processes.
[Images move through of a rear view of a researcher walking in a lab, the researcher looking at a specimen in a petri dish, and Claudia talking to the camera, and text appears: $27 billion in annual revenue by 2040]
Professor Claudia Vickers: By 2040 Synthetic Biology could deliver a $27 billion industry for Australia and it’s an opportunity we can’t afford to miss out on.
[Image changes to show Mr Phil Morle talking to the camera, and text appears: Mr Phil Morle, Main Sequence Ventures]
Mr Phil Morle: This is Australia’s opportunity to lead a series of new industries which will be powered by what’s possible with Synthetic Biology.
[Image changes to show a view looking down on cows grazing in a paddock, and text appears: Synthetic Biology can enable new food and agriculture products]
Synthetic Biology can enable new food and agriculture products.
[New text appears: Nutritionally rich new crops, Chemical free pesticides]
For example, nutritionally rich new crops, or pesticides without the chemicals.
[Image changes to show Kym talking to the camera, and text appears on the left: Insulin, mRNA vaccines, Therapeutic proteins, Cellular immunotherapies, Bioplastics]
Dr Kym Baker: Insulin, Covid-19 vaccines, therapeutic proteins, cancer therapies, plant-based plastics.
[Images move through to show Cathy talking to the camera, a close view of a conical flask of green liquid, a researcher looking up, and then the researcher holding the flask while another male looks on]
Dr Cathy Foley: I’m really excited about seeing Synthetic Biology come out of the lab and into the hands of all of us.
[Image changes to show Claudia talking to the camera and an inset brochure of the National Synthetic Biology Roadmap and text appears on the left: Synthetic Biology Roadmap]
Professor Claudia Vickers: CSIRO has delivered a Synthetic Biology Roadmap that identifies the commercial and economic opportunities for Synthetic Biology for the nation.
[Image changes to show a network of pinpoints surrounding a part of the world globe and the sun can be seen shining in the background, and text appears: With this roadmap Australia can become a global market leader]
With this Roadmap Australia can become a market leader globally in a thriving bioeconomy.
[New text appears: Read the roadmap to find out more www.csiro.au]
[Music plays and the image changes to show the CSIRO logo and text on a white screen: CSIRO, Australia’s National Science Agency]
