Register to DOULIX’s Grand Challenge and we will contact you to discuss your specific project. Selected projects will receive reagents and support free of charge to complete in vivo characterization of their standard biological parts.
How many times have you heard that synthetic biology is all about standardization? In close analogy to what happened to electronic engineering in the late fifties, the application of synthetic biology’s approach to biology necessarily requires the implementation of fundamental design principles such as:
Standardization plays a pivotal role, as SB relies on the design of modular, interchangeable and highly standardized biological parts, commonly known as BioBricks, that serve as construction units. Unfortunately, so far no comprehensive characterization of standard biological parts is available so that SB is still a “hand-crafted” discipline far from the forward biological engineering approach envisioned by founders at the beginning of the Twenty-first century.
At DOULIX ™ we started the largest in vivo characterization of standard biological parts but we need your help to accomplish this challenging task.
