Y Combinator partners and the founders of Ginkgo Bioworks will talk about what it takes to launch a biotech startup.

Ginkgo Bioworks was started in 2008 by a team from MIT. They went through Y Combinator in Summer 2012 and since then have raised over $150M in funding.

We'll talk about what YC looks for in teams, the particular challenges biotech startups face, and advice for PhDs who are interested in starting their own companies.
