Logo for BioBricks
BioBricks are the DNA sequences for bacterial genes that can be used as modules to bioengineer bacteria. The BioBricks Foundation (BBF) is a consortium of engineers and scientists from MIT, Harvard, and UCSF that are developing and promoting the use of these modules in synthetic biology - the designing of novel life forms (currently just bacteria).
