New Topics

In vitro Biology

Validation of an entirely in vitro approach for rapid prototyping of DNA regulatory elements for synthetic biology[1]

Error fetching PMID 23371936:
  1. Error fetching PMID 23371936: [invitro]
    Using cell-free extracts of E. coli to eliminate transformation/selection/culturing/purification steps when testing new DNA parts and genetic circuits. Additionally, In vitro performance of the tested parts had a clear correlation to in vivo performance.

Bioethics

Asilomar:This likely fits into some ethics section. But would be useful to get a nice, reasonably detailed overview of this conference. It is referenced often in synthetic biology circles as a model for public disclosure and internal consistency within a field. Would be nice to understand where/how the analogy fits and maybe where it doesn't?
