A video on standardisation in Synthetic Biology

Synthetic biology is the attempt to convert biotechnology into a full engineering discipline. Compared to other engineering areas, the process of standardization of biological material is a tough challenge.

One of the most important characteristics of every engineering field is the need for proper standards. In this short film we show: why standards are so important in synthetic biology, what should be standardized, who are the people driving this process, and the implications for society and the environment.

The film was produced as part of ST-FLOW, a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission FP7 (KBBE-2011-5) under the grant Agreement number 289326.
