IntroductionThe UK network on standards and characterisation in synthetic biology has a new website.
After a lively and productive inaugural meeting in Edinburgh on 16 July 2008, the UK SynBioStandards network has now launched a website - www.synbiostandards.co.uk containing news stories, commentaries, publications, information about upcoming events, and more.
The SynBioStandards Network is an innovative and interdisciplinary network for UK academics working in synthetic biology. Pulling together researchers from the worlds of engineering, biological sciences, computer science and the social sciences, the Network aims to create a space for them to share ideas, and to develop a common language and set of tools for synthetic biology research. Activities of the Network are primarily concerned with questions relating to standards and characterisation in synthetic biology.
The SynBioStandards Network is funded for three years from June 2008. The institutions represented in this Network are Imperial College London, and the Universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle. EGN members include Jane Calvert, Emma Frow, Graeme Laurie, Peter Robbins, Joyce Tait and Steve Yearley.
