**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.
