The standardization of synthetic biological systems

The design and implementation of synthetic biological systems is a very active field. A formidable challenge is the standardization of components, processes and information. Only then, what is now a (very advanced) bricolage will turn into an engineering discipline. Here, we analyze this challenge in detail, and draft an agenda to follow for the standardization of biological systems.
