Download the Roadmap: Engineering Biology (2019)

The interactive website is the best way to navigate the content and will always be the most up-to-date. We recognize, however, that there are some circumstances where a linear draft of the roadmap, or sections thereof, will be helpful. The downloads available here will be updated periodically.

EBRC recommends the following citation when referencing the Roadmap:
Engineering Biology Research Consortium (2019). Engineering Biology: A Research Roadmap for the Next-Generation Bioeconomy. Retrieved from DOI: 10.25498/E4159B.
