“Biofoundries provide an integrated infrastructure to enable the rapid design, construction, and testing of genetically reprogrammed organisms for biotechnology applications and research. Many biofoundries are being built and a Global Biofoundry Alliance has recently been established to coordinate activities worldwide”. The DAMP Lab became part of the Alliance, when it was formally launched on 9 th May, 2019 in Kobe, Japan, during a meeting of the Founding Members. More information about the biofoundries, the global alliance, and their objectives and working groups can be found here. Members’ perspectives on methods, protocols, instrumentation, and data were shared in a publication in Nature Communications.
