The first open event of DIYBIO will happen on the 16th of March, Wednesday at the MadLab from 7pm – 9pm.
The first meetup will be a general introduction and discussion session to DIYbio – its possibilities, practicalities and the associated ethical and safety issues of engineering life – and to get a feel for what people are interested in and kind of direction the group could take as a whole. There are already a few ideas about what kinds of projects the group could make happen – here are a few:
The evening will have a few presentations explaining what DIYBio’s all about, what we scientific research we would like to conduct, and to round it off, some DNA extraction! (It will only take 5 minutes). We’ve done it before, and everyone’s still with us today.
Hope to see you down there!
