Database of standard biological parts derived from plasmid features

Synthetic biologists rely on databases of standard biological parts to design genetic devices and systems. The Registry of Standard Biological Parts and other community resources provide the sequences and descriptions of thousands of genetic parts. The content of these database  is often...

Database of biological parts

Nucleic Acids Research just published a paper describing the results of our efforts to analyze the annotations of thousands of plasmids commonly used across many life science specialties. This effort allowed us to release a database of genetic parts and...

Analyzing the Registry of Standard Biological Parts

Analyzing the Registry of Standard Biological Parts

The design and construction of novel biological systems by combining standard biological parts represents a dominant paradigm in synthetic biology. Creating and maintaining a database of these building blocks is a way to streamline the fabrication of complex constructs. The...
