'''The BioBricks Foundation (BBF)''' is a not-for-profit organization founded by engineers and scientists from MIT, Harvard, and UCSF with significant experience in both non-profit and commercial biotechnology research. BBF encourages the development and responsible use of technologies based on BioBrick&trade; standard DNA parts that encode basic biological functions...

[[Image:biobricks-trademark.gif|right]]Using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts, a synthetic biologist or biological engineer can already, to some extent, program living organisms in the same way a computer scientist can program a computer. The DNA sequence information and other characteristics of BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts are made available to the public free of charge currently via MIT's [http://partsregistry.org Registry of Standard Biological Parts].
+
-
<br>
+
-
Any individual or organization is welcome to design, improve, and contribute BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts to the Registry. For example, in the summer of 2007, over 600 students and instructors at 60+ universities around the world are making, sharing, and using BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts as part of the [http://igem.org International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM)] competition.

<br><br>

The BBF supports an open technical standards setting process that is used to define BioBrick&trade; standard biological parts, and other technical matters relevant to synthetic biology research and applications.  Feel free to join or contribute to the work of the [http://openwetware.org/wiki/The_BioBricks_Foundation:Standards/Technical BBF Technical Standards Working Group] if you are interested.
+
-
<br><br>
+

The BBF also supports a Legal Working Group that is developing the BioBricks&trade; Legal scheme. Feel free to join or contribute to the [http://openwetware.org/wiki/The_BioBricks_Foundation:Legal BBF Legal Working Group] if you are interested.
