  1. Draft OpenMTA 11 June 2017, for comment

    Kahl, Linda
    The Open Material Transfer Agreement (OpenMTA) is designed to allow researchers to share materials on an open basis while working within the practical realities of technology transfer. Our goal it to help reduce transaction costs, support collaboration among researchers across institutional and international boundaries, promote access to materials for researchers in less privileged institutions and world regions, and provide an avenue for researchers and their institutions to be credited for materials made openly available. The OpenMTA was developed as a collaborative effort led by the BioBricks Foundation and OpenPlant Synthetic Biology Research Centre, with input from researchers, technology transfer professionals,...

  2. Should We Synthesize A Human Genome?

    Endy, Drew; Zoloth, Laurie
    Given that human genome synthesis is a technology that could be used to completely redefine the core of what now joins all of humanity together as a species, we argue that discussions of making such capacities real, like today's meeting at Harvard, should not take place without open and advance consideration of whether and under what circumstances it is morally right to proceed.

  5. Assembly of BioBrick standard biological parts using three antibiotic assembly

    Shetty, Reshma; Lizarazo, Meagan; Rettberg, Randy; Knight, Thomas F., Jr.
    An underlying goal of synthetic biology is to make the process of engineering biological systems easier and more reliable. In support of this goal, we developed BioBrick assembly standard 10 to enable the construction of systems from standardized genetic parts. The BioBrick standard underpins the distributed efforts by the synthetic biology research community to develop a collection of more than 6000 standard genetic parts available from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Here, we describe the three antibiotic assembly method for physical composition of BioBrick parts and provide step-by-step protocols. The method relies on a combination of positive and negative...

  6. The BioBrick Public Agreement v1a

    Endy, Drew; Grewal, David; Schultz, Jason; Lynch, Jennifer; Crews, Lee; Fischer, Mark
    We present an updated, clean draft for additional public comment of a new legal framework supporting the future of biotechnology. The framework, named here as the BioBrick Public Agreement, is based upon the contribution of promises not to assert any property rights against users of so-contributed standard biological parts. Comments and feedback on this working draft are requested. This draft, BPA v1a, replaces and earlier draft, BPA v1.

  15. BioBricks++: Simplifying Assembly of Standard DNA Components

    Che, Austin
    Construction of complex biological systems can require assembling many modules together. However, existing assembly schemes are lacking in generality, ease of use, or power to perform some desirable operations. Currently, biological modules are most easily specified and manipulated as DNA sequences. A general system, called BioBricks++, for assembling and manipulating DNA modules is proposed. BioBricks++ was inspired by the BioBricks assembly scheme but provides for more possible module operations. BioBricks++ uses commercially available restriction enzymes and standard biological techniques for assembling modules. The key to the method is in the specification of the standard DNA module. Modules are packaged with a standard prefix and suffix DNA sequence containing several restriction enzyme sites,...
