Instructions to BBF RFC Authors
This BioBricks Foundation Request for Comments (BBF RFC) provides in- formation about the preparation and submission of BBF RFCs to The Bio- Bricks Foundation (BBF).
MONOD, a Collaborative Tool for Manipulating Biological Knowledge
We describe an open source software tool called MONOD, for Modeler’s Notebook and Datastore, designed to capture and communicate knowledge generated during the process of building models of many-component biological ...
Engineered Post-Translational Logic (PTL)
Current synthetic biological circuits make use of protein-DNA and RNA-RNA interactions to control gene expression in bacteria. Systems that rely on the regulation of gene expression are relatively slow and unsuitable for ...
May 2006 correspondance between James Randerson and Drew Endy
I am a science journalist with the Guardian newspaper in London. We are a national daily paper. I am hoping to put together an investigative piece on how easy (or not) it would be for a would-be terrorist to put together ...
Refactoring Bacteriophage T7 (2004 version)
Natural biological systems are selected by evolution to continue to exist. Evolution might give rise to complicated systems that are difficult to discover, measure, model, and direct. Here, we redesign the genome of a ...
2003 Synthetic Biology study
Biology is a technology for processing information, materials, and energy. As a technology platform, biological systems provide access to artifacts and processes across a range of scales (e.g., the ribosome is a programmable ...
The BioBrick Public Agreement v1a
We present an updated, clean draft for additional public comment of a new legal framework supporting the future of biotechnology. The framework, named here as the BioBrick Public Agreement, is based upon the contribution ...
Synthetic Genomics: Options for Governance
Gene and genome synthesis, that is, constructing long stretches of DNA from constituent chemicals, provides scientists with new and unparalleled capabilities both for understanding biology and for using it for beneficial ...
Design and Evolution of Engineered Biological Systems
(Sixth International Conference on Systems Biology, 2005-10-20)
To date, engineered biological systems have been constructed via a variety of ad hoc approaches. The resulting systems should be thought of as pieces of art. We are interested in exploring how existing forward ...
Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) Version 1.1.0
In this BioBricks Foundation Request for Comments (BBF RFC), we specify the Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) Version 1.1.0 to enable the electronic exchange of information describing DNA components used in synthetic ...
