NEW DATE! Join us Oct. 15 for the release of our new report, The DNA of the U.S. Regulatory System: Are We Getting It Right for Synthetic Biology? Panelists will discuss how synthetic biology applications would be regulated by the U.S. Coordinated Framework, how this would affect the market pathway of these applications and whether the existing framework will protect human health and the environment.
In a new set of focus groups convened by the Synthetic Biology Project, participants raised concerns about the specific applications of the emerging technology.
VIDEO ADDED: A report from the Synthetic Biology Project looks at how the UN's Nagoya Protocol may affect U.S. researchers working in the field of synthetic biology.
In our latest podcast, we talked to Patrick Nee of Universal Bio Mining about the regulations and the use of synthetic biology in the mining indsutry.
In our new podcast, we hear about how synthetic biology is tracking bacteria in food processing.
The crowdfunded project to create a glowing plant could lead to the widely distributed release of a synthetically designed plant.
Please join us for the release of our 2013 national poll surveying the public's attitudes towards synthetic biology.
This national poll tracks the public attitudes towards synthetic biology in early 2013, finding that three out of four adults have heard little or nothing about the emerging technology.
