BBΩ-- An Extended BioBricks Assembly Standard that Utilizes Hierarchical Manipulation of Parts to Address Limitations in the Original BioBricks Assembly Standard
Julie Norville, Angela Belcher, and Tom Knight
Date: (Draft standard-April 16, 2009)

1 Purpose

The original BioBricks standard (BBF RFC 10) is limited, as it primarily allows linear assembly of parts. There are many types of DNA manipulation that it does not support. BBF RFC 22 describes a new and extended version of BBF RFC 10 that continues to allow linear manipulations but also allows hierarchical and orthogonal manipulations in order to give parts and device designers greater freedom. BBF RFC 22 lays the framework so that BBF RFC 22 may itself be extended in a non-destructive fashion.
