The concept of standard biological parts is central to synthetic biology. Biological parts are annotated DNA sequences that can be combined to make larger genetic systems. Initially, parts standardization focused on specific assembly strategies such as the BioBrick or BglBrick standards. Synthetic biologists have also recognized the need to use standard representations to describe parts.
A growing collection of genetic parts that can be mixed and matched to build synthetic biology devices and systems. As part of the synthetic biology community's efforts to make biology easier to engineer, it provides a source of genetic parts to iGEM teams and academic labs.
Consists of a library of biological parts from the database of plasmid features. GenoLIB was designed using the synthetic biology open language (SBOL), an emerging standard developed to organize libraries of genetic parts to facilitate synthetic biology workflows. This database supports unambiguous annotation of plasmid sequences. It is indexed with a combination of automatic and manual curation methods for the determination of feature sequences, borders and functional descriptions.
Enables querying and retrieval of standard biological parts for research and use in synthetic biology. SBPkb is a publically accessible Semantic Web resource for synthetic biology that was built on knowledge from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts adapted and transformed from the registry into SBOL-semantic. This resource can be queried using standard RDF technology (SPARQL queries) to retrieve parts that can be relevant to a synthetic biologist.
Hosts a repository of SBOL 2.0-compliant metabolic parts for metabolic engineering. The SBOLme parts are divided into four different types: chemical compound, reaction, EC number, and protein. SBOLme allows users to search for these biological parts with convenient criteria for composing biosynthesis systems. Biologists can use them to specify their designs for metabolic and biosynthetic pathways and to more effectively communicate their designs with their collaborators. SBOLme repository contains 28 437 chemical compound parts (including 1 386 drug compounds), 9 909 reaction parts, 6 883 EC number parts and 3 173 238 protein parts from 3 908 organisms.
A database of biological components for synthetic biology. CompuBioTicDB stores biological molecules, such as proteins and metabolites, as well as devices such as sensors, switches or timekeepers, which use the molecules as basic parts.
A repository of standard virtual parts (SVPs) which are reusable, modular and composable models of physical biological parts. These models can be joined together computationally in order to facilitate the model-driven design of large-scale biological systems. Models are available in SBML and Kappa format. Genetic descriptions of parts can be retrieved using SBOL. The database is still under construction and being manually curated.
