Putting the Tech in Biotech

Edward Perello

A growing number of software developers and designers are becoming increasingly inspired and eager to work in biology. However, lateral entrants to the field face a steep learning curve to climb before they can have effective discussions with professional biologists. This Catalyst Grant will help to develop the training resources on SynBio.info that encourage bioliteracy among a diverse range of stakeholders.
These resources will also be used to create a formal organization that can solicit and received support from individual contributors and partner organizations that share our passion to bridge the gap between tech and biotech and expand the bio-economy.
