How do we not have a page called synthetic biology? syntheticbiology.org has been pointed here. The content we wish to keep should be moved here.

I decided to redesign the Synthetic Biology page. Mostly the content is the same but I tried to add some updates as appropriate.

To do list:

  1. Austin has several documents linked off his homepage. The relevant ones should also be linked to the Documents page as well. I did it for a few of them, but there are more to be linked.
  2. Anyone know if it is okay to use the cells to gears logo on this page? Since it is used for the Registry, I assumed it would be okay to use it here as well but I could be wrong.
  3. If anyone knows how to rescale the cells to gears logo to be wider so that the text boxes can be wider as well, please do so. Or alternatively, is there a wider version available? Right now, the cells to gears picture is 582px but probably everything should be at least as wide as the OpenWetWare Main Page i.e. 752px?
    • Change everything to ~700px --Sri Kosuri 13:41, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)
  4. I just revised this page together using ideas from some of Jenny's pages and the color scheme of the parts registry. If someone has a better layout or color scheme etc., feel free to change it again.
    • I think it looks really great! --Sri Kosuri 13:41, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)
  5. There were a lot of articles written in the press that talk about Synthetic Biology, Drew, Tom, BioBricks, the classes and competitions etc. It might be nice if there were a centralized place for links to these. This is the motivation for the Press page.
    • Also a great idea --Sri Kosuri 13:41, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)
  6. Add a People page in light of the fact that not everyone in the listed labs does Synthetic Biology.
  1. Any other useful content to be added?
    • We need to add some info. about who we are. I started a "who we are" page. When this page is a little more polished it might be moved somewhere more appropriate. MITSBWG might want to think more generally about who we are and how we describe ourselves. (New page looks great)--BC 15:28, 14 Sep 2005 (EDT)

  1. These are great changes but...
    1. I think that we need to re-shuffle the ordering/presentation of the content on the front page so that it's more catchy. I was thinking that the community news stuff should go up top, followed by what's now there, but I'm not sure... Endy 03:09, 15 Sep 2005 (EDT)
