Description

Janet Hope:

"The BioBricks Foundation (BBF) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting and coordinating the production of standardized modules or “biobricks” that can be assembled into functional synthetic biological systems.

Some of the earliest writings on open source biology were triggered by synthetic biologists’ desire to ensure the viability of the enormous collaborative effort needed to realize their engineering goals. As of 2009, efforts are to develop a set of open source-style guidelines to encourage resource and data sharing in this growing field."
