But in a first-ever survey of the DIYbio community, the Synthetic Biology Project at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars finds this work is far more innocuous than news reports and others might suggest.
The Synthetic Biology Project at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars has been awarded a grant to participate in SYNENERGENE, a newly launched consortium of 28 groups supported with €4 million ($5.3 million) to engage in the responsible governance of synthetic biology.
A first-ever survey of Do-It-Yourself Biology (DIYbio) practitioners by the Synthetic Biology Project finds the community to be far different from fearful and often sensationalist representations in the media.
