This is a portal for information relating to the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Please add any information relevant to BioBricks protocols and standards.
The Registry of Standard Biological Parts is a collection of parts: sequences of DNA with specific function that can be combined together to implement more complex functions. These parts are called BioBricks.
Standards of practice
Along with this collection of parts, it is useful to have a set of standards of practice that govern the engineering of biological systems. There have been some initial attempts to brainstorm what form those standards might take. It is likely that we will need several classes of standards and that each class of standards which have different versions to meet different needs.
- Design: the way(s) in which systems are designed from BioBrick parts.
- See Abstraction hierarchy for a discussion on how to cope with the design of increasingly complex biological systems.
- Fabrication: the way(s) in which BioBricks are physically constructed and assembled together.
- Documentation: the way(s) in which BioBricks are documented.
- Characterization: the way(s) in which the behavior of BioBricks are measured.
- Operation: the conditions under which systems from BioBricks are operated.
- See Vectors for information on the vectors in which BioBricks reside.
- See Standard E. coli Strain for BioBricks for notes on constructing a novel strain in which all BioBricks would operate.
- See Neidhardt EZ Rich Defined Medium for a discussion on a potential standard media for part characterization.
- Device datasheet example
- Single copy vectors
- Standard E. coli Strain for BioBricks
- Standardized GFP quantification
