I thought it might be useful to compile a list of Synthetic Biology blogs that can be used as alternative sources of information and perspectives complementing academic journals.  This list was prepared using contributions from Nathaniel Gore  and Devin Camenares. Do you know other SynBio blogs that should be added to the list? Use the comments below to suggest it.

In additions to blogs, there are a number of synthetic biology groups on LinkedIn:

  • SyBIG :Synthetic Biology Interest Group: SyBIG is a special interest group in synthetic biology. It is a platform for professionals with an interest in synthetic biology to connect and network with other people in the field. About 2,100 members.
  • Synthetic Biology Groups: Synthetic biology is the fascinating field of engineering biological organisms to perform certain tasks and has the potential to solve outstanding problems in energy, medicine, and nanotechnology. About 1,700 members
  • SynBioBeta Group: SynBioBeta is the leading community of entrepreneurs, investors, service providers, policymakers, and biology enthusiasts devoted to the responsible growth of the synthetic biology field. About 350 members.
  • Synthetic Biology Investors Group: SBIG’s mission is to bring together investors interested in supporting the enormous human- and economic potential of Synthetic Biology as it impacts major industry sectors such as Agriculture-Food, Energy-Resources, Industrial Materials-Chemicals, Water-Environment and Medicine-Healthcare.restricted access.
