Compiled by Jim Haseloff at the University of Cambridge. SpannerPlantLogo140This site contains details of recent papers and activity in Synthetic Biology, with particular emphasis on: (i) development of standards in biology and DNA parts, (ii) microbial and (iii) plant systems, (iv) research and teaching in the field at the University of Cambridge, (v) hardware for scientific computing and instrumentation, (vi) tools for scientific productivity and collected miscellany.

Similar to the Cambridge-based Raspberry Pi and OpenLabTools initiatives, we promote the use of low cost and open source tools - in our case for use in biological engineering.

Enso Pearl: The Only Timer Actually Worth Buying

 

A smartphone makes a lot of little gadgets obsolete. However, even if you're attached at the thumbs to your iPhone, you might still find yourself coveting the Enso Pearl, the mother of all timers.

Capable of timing 30 different activities concurrently, it'll cost you a hundred bucks on Amazon. But that's worth it, especially if you're a multitasker with very strict schedules. Featuring an LCD face, the Enso lets you set up interval timing in case you have a lot of consecutive deadlines to meet. It also lets you repeat the same timer on several occasions and includes a stop watch and alarm function.
