Synthetic Biology Project - Maps Inventory

Synthetic Biology is the "convergence of molecular biology, information technology and nanotechnology, leading to the systematic design of biological systems."

The Synthetic Biology Project aims to foster informed public and policy discourse concerning the advancement of synthetic biology. One way in which they hope to achieve this aim is by providing a Google Maps based inventory of the world's research into synthetic biology.

The map shows the locations of companies, government laboratories, research institutions, and universities conducting synthetic biology research and policy centers examining issues surrounding synthetic biology. You can refine the map to show markers for only universities, companies or research institutions.

Beneath the map you can view some of the findings made by the Synthetic Biology Project whilst producing this map inventory.
