Synthetic Biology Training Paper

Government personnel responsible for the security of life sciences infrastructures are often not formally trained in biological sciences and relevant scientific fields. Although the security sector works together with the scientific community, the rapid pace of life sciences innovations, evolving terminologies, and shifts in research culture makes it challenging for the personnel in these [...]

Synthetic gene drives to alter animals in the wild

George Church's group published in eLife an article entitled "Concerning RNA-guided gene drives for the alteration of wild populations"in which they describe how CRISPR could be used to alter the genome of animals in the wild. A possible application of this approach could be to edit the genome of mosquitoes to prevent them from propagating [...]

PLoS Extends Synthetic Biology Collection

In 2012, Mark Isalan and myself compiled a list of synthetic biology papers published in PLoS ONE (See The PLOS ONE Synthetic Biology Collection: Six Years and Counting). This impressive corpus of synthetic biology papers was highlighted by PLoS in a journal-specific collection. For various reasons, the decision was made at the time to focus on [...]

Virginia Tech Libraries supports open-access journal PeerJ

The open access journal PeerJ is changing the open-access publication business model. Instead of a charging a publishing fee per article, it is a relying on a membership model. Each author pays a $99 lifetime membership to the journal but do not incur publication fees afterwards. The journal has been setting up partnerships with institutions [...]
