The BioBricks Foundation is a public-benefit organization created to ensure that synthetic biology is conducted ethically and transparently, for the benefit of all people and the planet. The BioBrick Public Agreement is a free legal tool allowing institutions, individuals, and companies to make their standardized biological parts freely available.
The BioBrick Public Agreement API provides developer access to the resources within the Public Agreement database. The RESTful API currently supports only GET calls over HTTPS and returns XML formatted data. Other methods and JSON formatted data are planned for future development.
