Making Security Viral: Shifting Engineering Biology Culture and Publishing

Publication Date: February 2022 | Originally published in ACS Synthetic Biology.

Consistent reflection on the implications of engineering biology tools and products can help direct and ensure their responsible development. In this paper, members of EBRC’s Security Working Group suggest that the publication stage of the research cycle is an important opportunity to consider the security implications of given work. They describe how such a process might be implemented.
