Hardware, Software, Wetware, Co-Design Research
Software tools make synthetic biology more effective by integrating concepts from electronic design automation into the specification, design, and assembly of complex biological systems.
CIDAR is composed of a diverse team of undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and research staff from a range of programming, engineering and scientific backgrounds.
Mixed Purpose Workspaces
With both Computational and Wetlab facilities, CIDAR has workspaces for software development and biological engineering research across multiple departments at Boston University.
