Synthetic Biology:Who we are
We are a group of students, faculty and staff from MIT and Harvard who are committed to engineering biology in an open and ethical manner.
Specifically, we are working to (a) specify and populate a set of standard parts that have well-defined performance characteristics and can be used (and re-used) to build biological systems, (b) develop and incorporate design methods and tools into a integrated engineering environment, (c) reverse engineer and re-design pre-existing biological parts and devices in order to expand the set of functions that we can access and program (d) reverse engineer and re-design a 'simple' natural bacterium.

Making life better, one part at a time.
