Standardization of components and processes has led to major advances in mature engineering disciplines. From screw threads to British Standards to unit operations, engineering has benefited from doing things in a standard way. The engineering of biological systems will also benefit from the development and implementation of standard components and practices. This page is intended to aggregate some of the different standards that the Synthetic Biology Working Group is trying to develop.
There have been some initial attempts to brainstorm what form those standards might take. It is likely that we will need several classes of standards and that each class of standards which have different versions to meet different needs.
