The BioBricks Foundation works to ensure that the engineering of biology is conducted in an open and ethical manner to benefit all people and the planet. The Studio worked with BBF to build a network of websites devoted to open-source synthetic biology.
Expanding upon Nicolas Myers’ design comps that defined the organization’s new branding, we developed the main BioBricks Foundation website through WordPress MultiSite in 2010. Our work also included customizing BBF’s Twitter and YouTube pages to match the design. In 2012, we re-designed the site, as shown in the screenshot to the left.
In 2013 we designed and launched the site for SB6.0, the Sixth International Meeting on Synthetic Biology, which took place in London. The site includes our customized implementation of the Event Espresso plugin for online event registration. Our previous work on SB5, from 2011, helped sell out that conference, and SB6 sold out too.
Further work includes the website for the BioBrick™ Public Agreement. This groundbreaking legal framework, inspired by the Creative Commons, encouraged members of the scientific/engineering community to contribute standard biological parts to the public domain, using tools built by Jeff Brock Studio.
We also did monthly maintenance work on OpenWetWare.org, a top resource for scientists worldwide to contribute information about their work in synthetic biology, using MediaWiki.
