Programming DNA

In 2007, Drew Endy (Endy Lab) talked about Programming DNA, a 2-bit language for engineering biology, at the 24th Chaos Communication Congress on biological engineering and synthetic biology.

This talk will introduce current best practice in biological engineering, including an overview of how to order synthetic DNA and how to use and contribute standard biological parts to an open source collection of genetic functions. The talk will also discuss issues of human practice, including biological safety, biological security, ownership, sharing, and innovation in biotechnology, community organization, and perception across many different publics.
