Very nice summary of startups in our field. What I really like is that the author didn't go for the old school companies but for the cutting edge startups.
From the article:
Gen9, A stealthy Boston start-up working on revolutionary methods for DNA synthesis (much needed for the future of the synthetic biology field!), has release this statement today: 2012 Gen9 G-Prize "WANTED: Innovators and disruptors interested in transforming an industry using synthesized DNA constructs. Gen9 has developed a unique technology to synthesize DNA constructs and has used it to…Details
Our Friends at Ginkgo Bioworks compiled a great guide to Biological Engineering they call: "The Foo Camper's guide to Biological Engineering" it's a great resource for beginners and expert bio hackers alike. So if you ever wondered how to make a bacteria smell like a banana or other nice tricks - go ahread a read this great…Details
Very interesting read and a great first steps in the development of a complete computer simulation of entire cell in the molecular level. "Scientists at Stanford University and the J. Craig Venter Institute have developed the first software simulation of an entire organism, a humble single-cell bacterium that lives in the human genital and respiratory…Details
in the July addition of The-Scientist magazine there's a nice comparison of different DNA design software.
Check out who's in number 1!
Check out this great article about synthetic biology past, present and future. http://www.technologyreview.com/featured-story/428187/biologys-master-programmers/ From this article: "Many of us thought that working at the single-gene level was just a starting point, that we really needed to figure out how all these newly identified genes arising from the Human Genome Project fit into networks, pathways, and…Details

Thank you all for your interest in our progress and willingness to help!
Genome Compiler is proud to be presenting it's first software release at Autodesk "ideas" conference (27th-29th/March). More about this amazing conference: Imagine it's the year 1977 and a diverse group of visionaries meet to speculate on the impact of the “personal computer.” Could they have imagined how the exponential growth of computation, connectivity, and…Details
This is just great - a glimps into the present and future of synthetic biology. Breakfast can be a pretty depressing ordeal, especially on these cold, dark mornings. Why not genetically engineer your yogurt to turn it into into a pharmacy-grade Antidepressant? That ought cheer the process up. Here's how to do it. …Details
Life may be the software that makes its own hardware, but where is the compiler? If we plan to start programming life itself, we are going to need a radically different and better tool kit than the one available to geneticists today. Omri lays out a concrete vision for how such a tool would work…Details
