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
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.”
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.
This report summarizes key findings from two focus groups held in April 2014, which sought to gauge awareness of synthetic biology and neural engineering.
A first-ever survey of Do-It-Yourself Biology (DIYbio) practitioners by the Synthetic Biology Project finds the community to be far different from fearful and often sensationalist representations in the media.
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.
In a new paper published in Science, researchers at Johns Hopkins University announce their creation of the first-ever synthetic chromosome, which many see as a landmark step in the field 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.
