Discussion on SynBERC itself

  • Wednesday afternoon

We need to give student feedback to NSF regarding SynBERC. This feedback falls into 4 categories listed below.

Strengths

  • What is SynBERC good at?

Weaknesses

  • What issues does SynBERC need to work on?

Opportunities

  • Where could SynBERC make an impact?

Threats

  • What problems can you foresee for SynBERC?

Discussion on standards

  • Thursday morning

Given that we are all getting together, it would likely be useful to discuss standards in synthetic biology. See previous discussions on standardization.

Parts

  • Where should part-part junctions be located?

Devices

  • Under what operating conditions should devices be characterized?
  • What are the common signal carriers for
    • transcripion-based devices
    • translation-based devices
    • post-translational devices

Chassis

  • What strains of E. coli should we use?
  • What strains of yeast?
  • What would an ideal chassis look like?

Testbed systems

Human practice

  • Are there any ethical standards specific to synthetic biology to which we should be adhering?
