We are a group of individuals from various institutions who are committed to engineering biology in an open and ethical manner.

We are currently working to

  • help 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,
  • develop and incorporate design methods and tools into an integrated engineering environment,
  • 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
  • reverse engineer and re-design a 'simple' natural bacterium.
