Synthetic Biology Data Exchange Group


We keep track of our meetings here:

Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL)

SBOL Website:

SBOL is designed to:

  • Allow synthetic biologists and genetic engineers to electronically exchange designs.
  • Send and receive genetic designs to and from biofabrication centers.
  • Facilitate storage of genetic designs in repositories.
  • Embed genetic designs in publications.
