They use a bistable gene network in E-coli to show that the cells concentration will affect the hysteresis and change the steady state level of gene expression. Higher cell concentration show higher hysteresis due to positive feedback loop effects. This research shows that cell concentration should be considered in designing the synthetic gene circuit for long term application.

This is a survey that they did between synthetic biology researchers to find out their opinions and experiences with available technologies such as public and private registries of biological parts, standard methods for physical assembly of DNA constructs, genomic databases that they've used to move forward they researches. This survey try to show the real potential of these technologies and their actual impacts on synthetic biology researches.

Journal of Biological Engineering . 7:12. Link. In this research they designed an integrative vector which has the BioBricks standard restriction sites and be able to integrate the designed part to the target site in E-coli genome with bacteriophage integration mechanism or homologous recombination.
