GB3.0: a platform for plant bio design that connects functional DNA elements with associated biological data

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5389719
PMID: 28053117
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkw1326

[…] n section.This part is flanked by GGAG and AATG sequences and, consistently with the GB specifications and PSS, comprises basic parts A1-A2-A3-B1-B2 (see Figure ). The datasheet includes, next to the SBOL Visual symbol representative of its standard position, sequence-related information, the plasmid backbone, the presence of internal sites, selection marker and a link to the complete DNA sequence […]


Bioinformatics for the synthetic biology of natural products: integrating across the Design–Build–Test cycle

PMCID: 5063057
PMID: 27185383
DOI: 10.1039/c6np00018e

[…] g standards such as the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML), providing a link between computational modelling (DESIGN) and wet-lab assembly (BUILD). SBOL is augmented with a visual representation, SBOL Visual which has the goal of standardising the visual representation of synthetic gene constructs, analogous to the standard representation of electronic circuits that enables electronic engineer […]


Annotation of rule based models with formal semantics to enable creation, analysis, reuse and visualization

PMCID: 4803388
PMID: 26559508
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btv660

[…] other visual formats such as SBGN or genetic circuit diagrams (). Models annotated with SBOL terms can be read for subsequent analyses, for example to produce genetic circuit diagrams using standard SBOL Visual icons.Model annotations are designed for machine readability and ideally should be produced computationally, for example by model repositories. The authors are currently developing APIs an […]


Metabolomics, Standards, and Metabolic Modeling for Synthetic Biology in Plants

Front Bioeng Biotechnol
PMCID: 4617106
PMID: 26557642
DOI: 10.3389/fbioe.2015.00167

[…] ierarchical and fully annotated form with the goal to improve designing, building, testing, and dissemination of synthetic biology designs. For the visualization of synthetic biology designs in SBOL, SBOL Visual (Synthetic Biology Open Language Visual) has been developed. It is a graphical notation allowing depiction of the structure of a design using glyphs to specify genetic parts, devices, modu […]


Developments in the Tools and Methodologies of Synthetic Biology

Front Bioeng Biotechnol
PMCID: 4244866
PMID: 25505788
DOI: 10.3389/fbioe.2014.00060

[…] at that is platform independent. Crucially, the format is designed to be extendable to include additional parameters as new characterization technologies and methodologies emerge. In combination with SBOL visual (SBOLv), which defines a standardized way to visually denote bioparts through symbols, the SBOL standard is set to enable the seamless sharing of genetic designs. Several bioinformatics an […]


A survey of enabling technologies in synthetic biology

J Biol Eng
PMCID: 3684516
PMID: 23663447
DOI: 10.1186/1754-1611-7-13

[…] , relative mammalian promoter unit (RMPU) [], functional composition tools included the expression operating unit (EOU) [], and data exchange tools included Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) [], SBOL Visual (SBOLv) [,], and visual or electronic data sheets for biological parts and devices [,]. […]
