'''The BioBricks Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (BBFIGERT)''' program, supported by the National Science Foundation, is a notmulti-disciplinary doctoral fellowship program for-profit organization founded by engineers and scientists from MIT, Harvard, and UCSF with significant experience students interested in both non-profit and commercial biotechnology research. BBF encourages the development science and responsible use engineering of technologies based on BioBrick&trade; standard DNA parts that encode basic biological functionsbioactive interfaces and devices.<br><br>Using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts, a synthetic biologist or biological engineer can already, to some extent, program living organisms Faculty members involved in the same way a computer scientist can IGERT program a computer. The DNA sequence information and other characteristics of BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts are made available to from the public free Departments of charge currently via MIT's [ Registry of Standard Biological Parts].<br><br>Any individual or organization is welcome to designChemistry, improveChemical and Materials Engineering, Electrical and contribute BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts to the Registry. For exampleComputer Engineering, in the summer of 2007Anatomy and Neurobiology, over 600 students Molecular and instructors at 60+ universities around Cellular Biochemistry,the world are making, sharing, Center for Biomedical Engineering and using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts as part the College of Pharmacy. Graduate students participating in the [http://partsIGERT program receive their one of these areas while benefiting from a host of multidisciplinary education and research activities in bioactive interfaces and devices.phpThe research program is focused around three integrative themes: Novel Bioactive Architectures, Cell/Main_Page International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM)] competitionProtein Interactions at Interfaces, and Integration Into Devices.
