Synthetic Biology Open Language

SBOL (Synthetic Biology Open Language) is an open-source standard for in silico representation of genetic designs. Inter alia, SBOL is designed to allow synthetic biologists and genetic engineers to exchange designs, send and receive genetic designs to and from biofabrication centers, facilitate storage of genetic designs in repositories and embed genetic designs in publications. We are attempting to associate a SBOL description of most plasmids of the SEVA collection (see pSEVA111 as an example).

The SEVA collection in SBOL format is currently under development.
