One of the projects currently under development is a web app designed to store information and resources about all the different pieces of software available for synthetic biology. The app organizes software hierarchically by function, and can be a great help for researchers trying to identify the best tool for the job and is the product of crowdsourced work. Another project is SynBrick, a game in which players solve puzzles and build genetic circuits mixing and matching genes like you would Lego bricks. The solutions provided by players can help solve real-life problems, and the best solutions may be tried in the lab some day. We submitted papers about these two projects to the International Workshop on Bio Design Automation that will happen this July in London, and got accepted. But we need your help to cover the registration and travel costs for one of our members. So lend us a hand and support open science!
Leukippos is an open synthetic biology lab. This is a great opportunity for everybody independent of your location. The Leukippos project gives everybody the opportunity to do great science. We are developing an mashup platform where you can find all synthetic biology related software. This platform is of great help for everybody doing synthetic biology related research. The synthetic biology game will be a great opportunity both to learn about synthetic biology and solve real world problems in an engaging game context.
Our two abstracts are accepted for a poster presentation at the 5th International Workshop on Bio-Design Automation IWBDA 2013 http://www.iwbdaconf.org July 13th in London. As all work in the Leukippos project is done on a voluntary basis, we need help to pay the registration fee and travel expenses for this meeting.
Registration fee, flight ticket for our presenter from Portugal, one night in a hotel in London
