I work in the Wilmer Eye Institute at the JHU School of Medicine. I learned about OpenWetWare from the 24C3 Endy lecture, and I've joined because I am interested in contributing to the BBF Technical Standards.
- Basic Synthetic Biology
- Epigenetics - Manipulating chromatin structures as a form of wetware programming in eukaryotic systems
- Biocircuits - Designing devices and chassis for cellular computation and communications
- Virology - Engineering viruses and pseudoviruses to deliver biological parts to cellular systems
- Applied Synthetic Biology
- Immunology - Defining the theoretical framework and designing components for an artificial immune system
- Astrobiology - Engineering sensory devices and energy pathways for extreme environments
- Biocomputing - Exploring silicon-based hardware-wetware communications interface
- Biosecurity and Biosafety
- Policy - Balancing the needs of an open hacker community with access restrictions
- Testing and Certification - Establishing an "Underwriters Laboratories" for developing standards and test procedures for biosafety
- Countermeasures - Creating fail-safe mechanisms to mitigate potential synthetic biology abuses
My wet lab contributions are documented in my OWW Notebook.
