ject's Science Advisor. But he added that, "the path forward toward successful, safe and accepted applications of synthetic biology is not clear. Consumer attitudes and oversight will play important roles in defining market outcomes, especially internationally."

The analysis also looked across the Atlantic, where 51 synthetic biology-related organizations were identified in Europe. The European Union has already invested around 30 million Euros in synthetic biology research.

About Synthetic Biology

According to the U.K. Royal Academy of Engineering, synthetic biology aims to design and engineer biologically based parts, novel devices and systems as well as redesign existing, natural biological systems.

The Synthetic Biology Project is an initiative of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars supported by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Project aims to foster informed public and policy discourse concerning the advancement of synthetic biology. For more information, visit: www.synbioproject.org

The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (www.wilsoncenter.org) is the living, national memorial to President Wilson established by Congress in 1968 and headquartered in Washington, D.C. The Center establishes and maintains a neutral forum for free, open, and informed dialogue. It is a nonpartisan institution, supported by public and private funds and engaged in the study of national and international affairs.
