A new report from the Synthetic Biology Project explores current government oversight of synthetic biology in the United States by examining the regulatory pathways of different products and applications.
After more than twenty years of basic and applied research, applications using synthetic biology are gaining in commercial use. But it has been difficult to find out how many “synbio” products are on the market or may come to market soon. This inventory gives the public the best available look at manufacturer-identified synbio-based products and the companies that produce them.
This report summarizes the July 2015 workshop Citizen Science & Crowdsourcing Metadata Workshop, which was hosted by the Wilson Center's Commons Lab in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Federal Community of Practice on Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science.
