Help:An Introduction to BioBricks



BioBricks™ is a standard for interchangable parts, developed with a view to building biological systems in living cells. The picture to the left shows BioBrick™ part BBa_B0034 within a plasmid. The part is flanked by a standard BioBrick™ prefix (P) and suffix (S). Click the image to find out more or alternatively see:

Building BioBrick™ Systems


BioBrick™ parts can be assembled to form useful devices, through a process often referred to as 'Standard Assembly'. BioBrick™ parts are composable; allowing endless numbers of Biobrick™ parts to be pieced together to form complex systems.

The assembly to the left shows 3 BioBrick™ parts assembled to create a simple device. Find out more about BioBrick™ assembly.
