Open House attendees were the first to try out Bioscriber, a tutorial module developed by the Joint Genome Institute and the Joint BioEnergy Institute as a means of introducing the concept of DNA synthesis and synthetic biology to the general public and how it is used by these two Institutes for biofuels research. The Bioscriber module is an ongoing project, with the next phase targeting the introduction of additional features and optimizing the module as a mobile app. The development team is pursuing a crowdsourcing approach whereby those who provided feedback on the initial launch will have an opportunity to help develop subsequent releases.
