RFCs

The BioBricks Foundation is dedicated to promoting and protecting the open development, sharing, and reuse of BioBrick™ standard biological parts. Taking inspiration from the Internet Engineering Task Force, we are now implementing a Request for Comments process. A Request for Comments, abbreviated RFC, is a short document that is intended for review by the rest of the community.

An RFC might

  • propose a standard of some sort (i.e. Tom Knight's 2003 BioBrick physical assembly standard or the Freiburg protein fusion assembly standard)
  • describe best practices or protocols (i.e. a protocol for assembling two parts)
  • provide information (i.e. a description of how to design transcriptional terminators)
  • simply comment, extend, or replace an earlier RFC

RFC's are static documents or digital objects like video's intended to get an idea, proposed standard, or method out to the rest of the community for comment. RFC's are numbered, for ease of referencing, and the numbers are assigned by the BBF.

Instructions for requesting a BBF RFC number, preparing an RFC, and submitting an RFC to the BBF are described in BBF RFC 0.

The complete list of all assigned RFC numbers and RFC documents (for those submitted) is listed below.
