What is SBOL?

The Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) can be used to represent genetic designs through a standardized vocabulary of schematic glyphs (SBOL Visual) as well as a standardized digital format (SBOL Data). SBOL is being developed by the SBOL Developer’s Group and our supporting organizations (see below). If you would like to join, please email the SBOL Editors (sbol-editors@googlegroups.com).



Discussion Archives

Current support for the development of the SBOL standard is provided by the NSF through Collaborative awards #1355909, #1356401, and #1522074 and EPSRC grant #EP/J02175X/1. Other sponsorship, support, or endorsements have been provided by the following federal agencies, federal research centers, commercial enterprises, and academic institutions. Please be aware that this list may not be complete, since the number of SBOL supporters is growing rapidly. If your institution supports SBOL, and it is not listed here, please email the SBOL editors.
