July 2017, Pre-Recorded : “ShortBOL: A shorthand for synthetic biology design”.

Synthetic biology is a field that seeks to apply the methodologies of engineering to the design of living systems. In moving from boutique genetic engineering and metabolic optimisation towards a more rigorous engineering process, the exchange of design specifications becomes critical for collaboration, reproducibility and academic publication. SBOL is a data standard that is addressing these needs. This talk presents the context for the development of SBOL, and a tour of some of the supporting technologies, with an eye to where it may go in the future.
