Synthetic Biology and Big Ball of Mud

Researchers at the MIT OpenWetWare project are attempting to engineer Synthetic Biology, creating reusable and composable biological components that can be combined to create useful organisms. In the process, they are discovering that biological systems don’t follow the same patterns of good architecture familiar to us from software.
In software engineering, architecture is perceived as critical [...]
