September 12, 2012
survey checklist image

Linda Kahl has formulated a survey to get information that will help define the enabling technologies of synthetic biology. She writes:

''Dear Colleagues,
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am a research associate working with Drew Endy to investigate and develop options for how property rights can best be applied and adapted to support innovation in synthetic biology. As part of my work, I would like to assemble a baseline list of the "enabling technologies" of synthetic biology. This would be a helpful first step in evaluating the background property rights status for the technologies that are considered most useful/valuable for research and development of synthetic biology applications.
I ask that you please complete this survey to help define the enabling technologies of synthetic biology. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete - just answer the questions based on your own experience and perspective. Answers received by September 15th would be most helpful. EVERYONE WHO SENDS IN A RESPONSE WITH THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS WILL RECEIVE A SUMMARY OF THE RESULTS.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Please don't hesitate to call or email with any questions, or even just to chat about enabling technologies in synthetic biology.
Best,
Linda''

"We are going to organize an interactive expo in our uni this September 19, 20 and 21. This expo is called "Túnel de la Biología Sintética" (The Tunnel of Synthetic Biology), which is basically a set of 10 stations (with posters and interactive activities) arranged in a manner that resembles a tunnel, where we'll introduce the general public to Genetic Engineering, Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology using an accessible language." - Team UANL Mty-Mexico

There will be an online tour in English at the following times:

  • Sept 19 - 10:00AM Dallas time / 17:00 Paris time
  • Sept 20 - 10:00AM Dallas time / 17:00 Paris time

Team BostonU - New England meet-up

"The Boston University iGEM team would like to invite you to participate in the first ever New England iGEM (NEGEM) meeting in Boston on Saturday, September 15th. We thought it would be a great opportunity for the New England regional teams to meet one another and practice presenting before the Regional Jamboree in October so students and advisers can give the teams feedback and the teams will have time to improve their presentations before October. We'll happily welcome other teams from the North East outside of New England if you want to travel to Boston for the day. We hope to see you in September! For more information, please contact Traci Haddock (thaddock at bu dot edu), the BU Team Adviser."
