Good question! It's building as we speak. We'll give you a bird's eye view of what all the excitement and uncertainty is about. More
In a new op-ed, Eleonore Pauwels of the Synthetic Biology Projects and Jim Dratwa explore the limits of what DNA can tell us.
The Synthetic Biology Leadership Excellence Accelerator Program (SynBio LEAP) has awarded 23 fellowships to a wide variety of professionals to explore the future of synthetic biology. The fellows will convene their first meeting in early February, hosted by the Synthetic Biology Project at the Wilson Center.
David Shifrin of the Public Library of Science (PLOS) speaks with David Rejeski about the importance of properly communicating synthetic biology concepts.
The European Research Area Network for the development and coordination of synthetic biology in Europe has released a new report outlining the challenges and opportunities for the technology over the next decade. The document is expected to inform funding and policy decisions.
This report summarizes key findings from two focus groups held in April 2014, which sought to gauge awareness of synthetic biology and neural engineering.
This document provides a set of guidelines to help organizations, institutions, journalists, and others discuss the emerging field of synthetic biology with a variety of audiences.
Environmental scientists and synthetic biologists have for the first time developed a set of key research areas to study the potential ecological impacts of synthetic biology.
In a new set of focus groups convened by the Synthetic Biology Project, participants raised concerns about the specific applications of the emerging technology.
A cross-disciplinary team is calling for public discussion about a potential new way to solve longstanding global ecological problems by using an emerging technology called “gene drives.”
As research into synthetic biology increases, this map identifies companies, universities, research institutions, laboratories and other centers across the globe that are active in this emerging field.
