Production and Use - iGEM (fabs... & codon devices, ginkgo?)
Hands on WetLab demo:
Transformation foo using real Datasheets
Show off a couple of MIT Registry Binders
biobricks foundation: volunteer, help steer the ship
igem: do syn bio for real
Questions / Ideas
In the history of electronics, did the pioneers begin by inventing interesting/useful devices or reusable basic parts? It seems to me they started with certain applications in mind (devices) which over time revealed a set of commonly used basic parts.
a technology flowchart revealing the significant events leading to the advent of synthetic biology and project what the most important advances will be 5 to 10 years into the future.
A diagram representing available biobrick parts & devices localized to their areas of activity in a cell.
Meeting Notes Aug 3 2008
Paper copy of the registry (w blotted DNA)
Tranformation foo kit (maybe)
Transformation foo kit - good introduction to modular biobrick parts
Isn't biology already standardized? "We use the same words..."
Compile a list of existing resources
Review them all for a consensus of bullet points/modules
Perhaps there are some well-thought out existing introductions/organiz.
Follow up on email summaries:
"telconf ultra-short summary" and "Open Source Registry Conference Call"
Let's be interactive, have a fun breakout session, just like the $1K BioBrick challenge.
Is this still in effect? Could someone from CSB go to SB4 if they win?
Have a hackathon for SB tools
Bring a shopping list of most desired mini-SB apps (primer designer)
This would be a good way to "call to action" at the end of the wkshop
Describe the software tools landscape, provide a 'hook' for hackathon
Anticipate the audience:
They may ask "when can we build synthetic networks?"
HOW IS SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY DIFFERENT FROM SYSTEMS BIOLOGY
they know a lot about computational prediction & simulation
