SBSC Kickoff Meeting, March 2015 at Stanford

The kickoff meeting for the Synthetic Biology Standards Consortium (SBSC) was held at the Stanford University Li Ka Shing Conference Center on March 31, 2015. This workshop was an open, public meeting, with an invitation published in the United States Government Federal Register.

The charge of the workshop was to identify several initial SBSC working groups with critical mass, leadership teams, and a clear path forward to deliver standards to support the growth of the bioeconomy. Participants developed terms-of-reference for SBSC candidate working groups. Terms of reference for each candidate working group addressed problem definition, relevance, and identified specific actions for success. For more details download the full workshop report.
