Nona’s goal is to provide community based resources to make the open source software environment in synthetic biology a global success.

OUR MISSION

Nona Research Foundation, Inc. was created to broaden participation, increase access, and advance innovation in the design, distribution, documentation, maintenance, and use of open-source software and tools in the fields of synthetic biology and bio-design automation.

OUR IMPACT

Research using Nona’s software and other tools will lead to advances and improvement in health and healthcare, energy production and storage, materials manufacture, protection of the environment, and human welfare. Producing life-saving pharmaceuticals, repairing defective genes, destroying cancer cells, generating biofuels, cleaning up the environment, and assisting climate change through carbon capture, are examples of the specific applications anticipated in synthetic biology and related scientific fields enabled by Nona’s advances.

OUR ACTIVITIES

Nona’s activities will be developed to accomplish:

‚Äč

  • Research and development of the software, tools and associated documentation in systems that will enable scientists to design and construct a broad range of biological tools, techniques, and scientific understanding

  • Maintenance and improvement of such software, tools and associated documentation

  • Availability and accessibility of such software, tools and associated documentation, so that they are more widely and freely available to the public.

We educate developers to adopt robust coding standards, modularity, and clear concise documentation.

Nona’s synthetic biology software follows the Specification/Design/Build/Test cycle pattern prevalent in other rigorous engineering disciplines:
