DiyBio reading list, and resource links
« on: September 06, 2015, 03:34:32 PM »
This will eventually result in a wiki page, but for now:

tequals0.wordpress.com   Great blog from the guy who brought us the bosslabs gel box (GelIS) He is currently working on producing indigo, and I think it would be really interesting to participate in that project if possible.

http://www.oreilly.com/biocoder/  Quarterly publication containing short articles by folks in the DiyBio community. Free download, the hardcopies can be ordered for $5, and they have really pretty covers.

http://biobuilder.org/  Interesting project. The textbook looks like it might be a good fit for us.

http://www.amazon.com/At-Bench-Laboratory-Navigator-Updated/  Looks like a good guide to basic lab practices, and basic lab etiquette.

http://genspace.org/ Great space in Brooklyn, has provided us with a lot of advice and some of our equipment.

http://biocurious.org/ Great space in Silicon Valley, has provided us with a lot of advice and some of our equipment.

https://counterculturelabs.org/  Some overlap with BioCurious, located in Oakland, lots of interesting projects.

http://openwetware.org/ Has some really good info, but does not seem to be as active as it was a few years ago.

http://diybio.org/ Home of some good info, and a very active email list. (Signal to noise ratio varies, but voices of reason chime in pretty regularly.)

http://igem.org/ We participated last year through Genspace. (http://2014.igem.org/Team:Genspace/Team)  It would be super-cool if we could have our own team in the next year or so.

https://synbiota.com  Online lab notebook and supplier of RDP kits. ( Both GenSpace and BioCurious have recommended the rainbow factory kit. )

Is RDP related to Biobricks?

I believe the RDP standard is based on Genomikon's "BioBytes" (patent pending, of course) instead of BioBricks.
The BioBytes seem to be a lot easier to work with, but are proprietary-ish.
See attempted attached image from ( http://www.getsynbio.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/biobricks.png ) for the quick version, or for more detail:
