Any individual or organization is welcome to design, improve, and contribute BioBrick™ standard biological parts to the Registry. For example, in the summer of 2007, over 600 students and instructors at 60+ universities around the world are making, sharing, and using BioBrick™ standard biological parts as part of the [http://igem.org International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM)] competition.
The BBF supports an open technical standards setting process that is used to define BioBrick standard biological parts, and other technical matters relevant to synthetic biology research and applications. Feel free to join or contribute to the work of the [http://openwetware.org/wiki/The_BioBricks_Foundation:Standards/Technical BBF Technical Standards Working Group] if you are interested.
The BBF also supports a Legal Working Group that is developing the BioBricks Legal scheme. Feel free to join or contribute to the [http://openwetware.org/wiki/The_BioBricks_Foundation:Legal BBF Legal Working Group] if you are interested.
