Toward biohacked medicines: the Open Insulin case

By |2019-04-17T21:39:25+00:00September 13th, 2018|

Today we published two papers discussing the development of biohacked medicines spearheaded by the DIYBio movement. This revolution could dramatically change the way patients access life-saving drugs. In an opinion entitled "The Open Insulin Project: A Case Study for Biohacked Medicines", in collaboration with Warren Kaplan (Boston University), we make the argument that emerging innovation ecosystems challenge [...]

Database of biological parts

By |2019-02-06T19:38:31+00:00April 30th, 2015|

Nucleic Acids Research just published a paper describing the results of our efforts to analyze the annotations of thousands of plasmids commonly used across many life science specialties. This effort allowed us to release a database of genetic parts and sequence features that will be useful in better annotating existing plasmids and develop new expression [...]

PLoS Extends Synthetic Biology Collection

By |2019-02-06T19:41:29+00:00July 14th, 2014|

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 [...]

PLoS Launches Synthetic Biology Community

By |2019-02-06T19:41:29+00:00July 14th, 2014|

PLoS is launching the PLoS Synthetic Biology Community (synbio.plos.org) as a hub to allow readers and authors of synthetic biology literature to gather in one place. This resource will provide informal online avenues for researcher collaboration and discussion of PLOS-published research, it will help promote the synthetic biology collection, and it will contribute to demonstrate the [...]
