The SBOL Developers community meets approximately every 6 months. The discussion at these workshops is often convivial, collegiate, and interesting. In May 2014 the SBOL Developers group elected to co-locate future SBOL workshops with similar workshops hosted by the “Computational Modeling in Biolog Network (COMBINE)". This creates an atmosphere where synthetic biologists and systems biologists can work toward a common goal of integrating biological knowledge through inter-operable and non-overlapping data standards. Our “COMBINE”d efforts empower exciting innovations like modeling whole cells.

We welcome participants from industry to these discussions, as the SBOL standard exists to support commercial as well as scientific innovation in synthetic biology and biotechnology.
