// An interface between designers and synthetic biologists.
// The interactive platform gives the designer access to DNA parts.
// It connects the designer with the synthetic biologist in order that they may collaborate.
// This is approach is not form following function, nor is it design led science. It is pure collaboration.
Process: part 1
// Research into collaboration: a project between myself and James Field, PhD Imperial College London
// Using e.coli cells as a microfactory programmed with DNA from jelly fish and coral to produce light harvesting proteins
Process: part 2
// A workshop to test the experience of the interface, how the information should be displayed, and how technical the content should be.
// Participants, of different design backgrounds, were asked to brainstorm ideas by using the different interface tools.
// These were analysed to see which tools gave the most sophisticated and innovative ideas.
