E-Science Toolkit for Synthetic Biology (working title)


  1. Create a list of databases, services and software available for Synthetic Biology
  2. Create a set of work-flows for Synthetic Biology


Create a web site/database of available databases, services and software

  1. Databases
    1. Registry of Standard Biological Parts
    2. 2010 NAR Database Summary Paper Alpha List
  2. Web sites
    1. Synthetic Biology
    3. Bioinformatics Links Directory
  3. Web Services
  4. Publications
    1. Nucleic Acids Research annual Web Server Issue in 2009

Establish "life lines"

Documentation for open source software is sometimes limited, especially when the software is still quite new. Getting online help can be a real life saver but it takes time to find all the sources, register with them and be ready to ask questions when required. Find mailing lists and on-line forums for the following and start following them:

  1. Taverna
  2. myExperiment

Develop web services required that don't yet exist

Create Taverna work-flows
