our first professional research collaboration, has produced reliable,
standardized biological parts that constitute a free operating system for
biotechnology. In addition, the BBF also manages
an open-source wiki that facilitates teaching, learning, and sharing
of data for 9,000 researchers through a culture of collaboration and open
science. That’s not all. Just this past June, the BBF successfully
organized SB 5.0<http://biobricks.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b703a65bcfd5282409f58de2e&id=21f8112205&e=680516baa2>,
an inspiring 3-day global conference in SynBio with the participation of
over 70 international speakers and 730 attendees from over 25 countries.

With 2012 approaching, the BBF plans to do even more to support and connect
our SynBio community, promoting the effectiveness of OWW, creating new
educational programs, and much more. *We need your help to make these goals
a reality.*
