Get & Give Philosophy

The Registry is an open community that runs and grows on the "Get & Give (& Share)" philosophy. Users get parts, samples, data, and tools from the Registry to work on their synthetic biology projects. They'll give back to the Registry the new parts they've made, as well as data and experience on new and existing parts. Finally, users will share experience and collaborate in the Registry's open community through their wikis and other social tools.
