  • Conboy, Caitlin; Braff, Jen; Endy, Drew (2006-03-16)
    We are working to enable the engineering of integrated biological systems. Specifically, we would like to be able to build systems using standard parts that, when combined, have reliable and predictable behavior. Here, ...
  • Kelly, Jason (2005-08-11)
    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. Here, I propose to explore how existing forward engineering ...
  • Kelly, Jason; Michener, Josh; Endy, Drew (Sixth International Conference on Systems Biology, 2005-10-20)

  • Sutton, Samantha; Neves, Sara; Leung, Lauren; Endy, Drew (2005-12-07)
    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 ...
  • Canton, Bartholomew; Endy, Drew (2005-10-21)
    The engineering of biological systems with predictable behavior is a challenging problem. One reason for this difficulty is that engineered biological systems are embedded within complex and variable host cells. To help ...

  • Shetty, Reshma P.; Endy, Drew; Knight, Thomas F. Jr (2007-07-17)
    Implementing in vivo information processing is a key challenge in synthetic biology. We describe the construction and characterization of digital transcription-based devices from zinc fingers and leucine zippers. We also ...
  • Shetty, Reshma P.; Knight, Thomas F. Jr (Sixth International Conference on Systems Biology, 2005-10-20)
    The goal of Synthetic Biology is to engineer systems from biological parts. One class of systems are those whose purpose is to process information. My work seeks to build transcription-based devices for use in combinational ...
  • Che, Austin (2003-08-31)
    To engineer complex synthetic biological systems will require modular design, assembly, and characterization strategies. The RNA polymerase arrival rate (PAR) is defined to be the rate that RNA polymerases arrive at a ...
  • Che, Austin, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    To engineer complex synthetic biological systems will require modular design, assembly, and characterization strategies. The RNA polymerase arrival rate (PAR) is defined to be the rate that RNA polymerases arrive at a ...
  • Furger, Franco (2007-12-04)
    This report is based on the assumption that in Europe and in its member countries—with the exception perhaps of Switzerland—“synthetic genomics” as a distinct policy domain does not yet exist. This conclusion is based ...
  • Anand, Ishan; Kosuri, Sriram; Endy, Drew (2006-05-26)
    Refactoring is a technique used by computer scientists for improving program design. The Endy Laboratory has adapted this process to make the genomes of biological organisms more amenable to human understanding and design ...
  • Knight, Thomas (MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory; MIT Synthetic Biology Working Group, 2003)
    The lack of standardization in assembly techniques for DNA sequences forces each DNA assembly reaction to be both an experimental tool for addressing the current research topic, and an experiment in and of itself. One ...
  • Endy, Drew (2005-09-29)
    This document provides background material in support of the 2005 intercollegiate Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (aka iGEM). Herein, you can read quick summaries of earlier competitions and courses, obtain a ...
  • Collett, Marc (2007-12-04)
    In 2002, a team of researchers at the State University of New York led by Eckard Wimmer assembled a DNA template for the RNA poliovirus using an internet-available nucleotide sequence and mail order synthetic ...
  • Endy, Drew (2013-03-27)
    Research presentation on recent and unpublished work before the MIT Synthetic Biology Working Group on 24 September 2012 in MIT Building 56.
  • Brent, Roger (2006-11-22)
    During the 20th century, advances in biological understanding sparked a global revolution in biological capability, or RBC. Since that time, the revolution has proceeded in a Moore's-law-like fashion for many decades. ...
  • Endy, Drew (2006-06-15)
    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 ...
  • Soergel, David; Choi, Kirindi; Thomson, Ty; Doane, Jay; George, Brian; Morgan-Linial, Ross; Brent, Roger; Endy, Drew (2008-06-19)
    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 ...
