Benchmarking initiative: What synthetic biologists can learn from the semiconductor industry

Benchmarking is measuring the quality of performance and comparing it with standard measurements of your peers. A common practice in mature engineering disciplines, benchmarking aims to determine what and where improvements are called for, to analyze how others achieve high-performance levels, and to use this information to improve performance. As synthetic biologists, we all care about making biology easier to engineer. But how do we measure our success, and how can we improve upon it?

SynBioBeta and Berkeley Lights are initiating a joint effort to bring together companies to improve benchmarking in synthetic biology. Please complete the form below if you’re interested in participating or to receive updates on this important initiative.
