BBF encourages the development and responsible use of technologies based on BioBrick&trade; standard DNA parts that encode basic biological functions...<br><br>[[Image:biobricks-trademark.gif|right]]Using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts, a synthetic biologist or biological engineer can already, to some extent, program living organisms in the same way a computer scientist can program a computer. The DNA sequence information and other characteristics of BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts are made available to the public free of charge currently via MIT's [ Registry of Standard Biological Parts].<br>Any individual or organization is welcome to design, improve, and contribute BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts to the Registry. For example, in the summer of 2007, over 600 students and instructors new website at 60+ universities around the world are making, sharing, and using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts as part of the [ International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM)] competition.<br><br>The BBF supports an open technical standards setting process that is used to define BioBrick&trade; 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 [ BBF Technical Standards Working Group] if you are interested.<br><br>The BBF also supports a Legal Working Group that is developing the BioBricks&trade; Legal scheme. Feel free to join or contribute to the [ BBF Legal Working Group] if you are interested. <br><br></div>|width="235px" class="" style="border: 1px dashed #cccccc; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff"|<div style="clear: left; text-align: left; float: left; padding: .4em .9em .9em">'''News'''<br>*The '''[[The_BioBricks_Foundation:BPA | BioBrick&trade; Public Agreement]]''' Version 1a is now available for public distribution and comment.
