CIDAR Researchers Develop Powerful New Software Tools

Douglas Densmore (electrical and computer engineering, biomedical engineering, bioinformatics) and Swapnil Bhatia (electrical and computer engineering), have joined forces to streamline synthetic biology from concept to design to assembly, encoding solutions in a rich suite of software tools. In a paper published in Nature Biotechnology, they and collaborating researchers at MIT demonstrated how their tools can be used iteratively to help synthetic biologists to specify, analyze, and improve large-scale designs for engineered biological organisms.
