Got a paper published based on my Ph.D work!
The ability to transmit, organize, and query information digitally has brought with it the challenge of how to best use this power to facilitate scientific inquiry. Today, few information systems are able to provide detailed answers to complex questions about neuroscience that account for multiple spatial scales, and which cross the boundaries of diverse parts of the nervous system such as molecules, cellular parts, cells, circuits, systems and t...

Bioengineers Build Open Source Language for Programming Cells

BY DANIELA HERNANDEZ

"Drew Endy wants to build a programming language for the body.

Endy is the co-director of the International Open Facility Advancing Biotechnology — BIOFAB, for short — where he’s part of a team that’s developing a language that will use genetic data to actually program biological cells. That may seem like the stuff of science fiction, but the project is already underway, and the team intends to open source the language, so that other scientists can use it and modify it and perfect it.

The effort is part of a sweeping movement to grab hold of our genetic data and directly improve the way our bodies behave — a process known as bioengineering. With the Supreme Court exploring whether genes can be patented, the bioengineering world is at crossroads, but scientists like Endy continue to push this technology forward.

Genes contain information that defines the way our cells function, and some parts of the genome express themselves in much the same way across different types of cells and organisms. This would allow Endy and his team to build a language scientists could use to carefully engineer gene expression – what they call “the layer between the genome and all the dynamic processes of life.”...."

Last week...!  Don't miss your chance to get one!
 
Who wants to play with a simulated worm where you can look at what its cells are doing in 3D?  Check it out over here: http://bit.ly/KickstartWorm

And I finally get to personally thank you for everything you ever did for me.

At @OpenWorm, we're excited about recent press coverage but we want to clarify that we still have a long way to go: http://bit.ly/1cLOVZz

I, for one, can't wait for the first c. elegans Grand Master.

+John Fries I optimistically expect we will start thinking about integrating the neural activity with muscular activity and vice versa around March. A more conservative estimate is June. After that the rate of progress is impossible to predict.

Seems like a great example of digital biology!

Synthetic Biology for Computer Programmers

June 8th, San Francisco

"Synthetic Biology for Computer Programmers is a new course conceptualized and written by Dr. Josh Gilmore and Dr. John Cumbers. The course provides a one day interactive class for teaching synthetic biology to non-experts. The course is written for tech-professionals in other fields such as computer science, to learn about the growing power of biology to perform useful tasks and make high value products from drugs to spiders silk. We focus on analyzing the similarities and differences in our fields of study to make these lessons accessible, inspirational, and memorable."

Story
Introduction
I’m an independent consultant, entrepreneur, and project scientist working at the intersection between computer technology and biological systems. My projects include online resources for neuroscience such as neurolex.org, wholebraincatalog.org, and openworm.org.  I’m seeking new models of collaboration for scientific development in the new economy.
