**Aims and Scope**

The complexity of the genomic structure and our limited understanding
of biological processes require new computational methods to investigate
the huge number of possible designs for circuits, pathways, and entire
genomes, with the ideal being the ability to model, simulate and
redesign a biological system in-silicon prior to fabrication, similar to
CAD/CAM for physical devices.

Synthetic Biology aims to establish a standard and effective biological
design flow, where biological systems are designed and verified
computationally,
before in vitro synthesis and in vivo experiments. Each phase of this
process has multiple challenges ranging from managing high-throughput
laboratory operations to developing new software and defining accurate and
interoperable computational models.

The Special Interest Group in Biological Systems Design (BSD-SIG 2012)
aims to provide a broad view of the current state-of-the-art for scientists
from biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and engineering.
