We intend to use this space to seed, prioritize and sustain a list of 'Top gaps' in the practice of synthetic biology for this group - and others - to consider, discuss, and work towards addressing. We ideally hope to produce from the discussions documented and materials collected here a simple, digestible co-authored paper, or papers, summarizing each gap, current practices, open questions, and recommendations for moving forward.
