*[[Registry Wish List]]

*Subpart Search: search for parts that match a portion of this part or this sequence of parts. Software agent would take a part name and using the ontology definitions would query other registries via their semantic web interfaces (no need to know about schema: e.g., just say "need all <#part>s that match a <#component> of the given <#part>"). Software agent can search anyone's registry if they use a common ontology: simply follow URLs (or use query language) and add triples to the local RDF store.

-
*Superpart Search: search for parts that contain the given parts
+
-
*What about sub- and superpart searches in distributed registries?
+
-
*Search for function (case insensitive): repressor, reporter, inverter, etc.
+
-
*What are the available (instances of) parts? Are they used in any devices already? (saves time for constructing expression device). Problem: different names for exactly same DNA sequence
+
-
*What kinds of devices/systems have been built?
+
-
*Search for "similar" parts

Overview

This is a part of the effort to provide a standardized, extensible, scalable and machine-processable interface for the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Semantic Web technologies seem to provide a solution to this problem. The success of developing a Synthetic Biology ontology depends in part on a good definition of the BioBricks abstraction hierarchy.
