WOODROW WILSON INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR SCHOLARS
This project will explore the application of a prediction market to an emerging field of science ? synthetic biology ? where a better understanding of future development and directions in the field could be of significant value to funders, policymakers, and researchers. We are requesting funds from NSF to support the involvement of external experts to improve the design, function, and evaluation of the experiment. A short paper summarizing the experiment and highlighting future research needs will be produced at the conclusion of the project.
