The BioBricks Foundation is a public benefit organization that supports the open and ethical development of biotechnology around the world.
BioBriocks Free Genes project is an open biotechnology commons for useful DNADNA sequences. Free Genes uses the open MTA to make all sequences available within the Free Genes project free for anyone to use and/or modify. Anyone can send DNA sequences to the BioBricks Foundation for inclusion into the Free Genes project. The BioBricks Foundation will prepare, clone, review, synthesize, and distribute submitted DNA sequences upon request. The projects removes all type IIS restriction sites from DNA sequences and uses the GoldenGate modular cloning (MoClo) assembly standard. The Free Gene Project has over 10,000 genes ready for use by academics, non-profits, companies, and DIY biotechnologists.
