A dialogue among experts in synthetic biology and science communication highlights research on scientist and public attitudes, practical realities, and strategies for communicating about synthetic biology, including best practices for scientists engaging with public audiences. Synthetic biology is presented as a case study; many communication principles discussed are applicable to other emerging topics in science and society.
