Biohacking—you can do it, too



Ellen Jorgensen

TED

Posted: Jan 17, 2013


We have personal computing, why not personal biotech? That’s the question biologist Ellen Jorgensen and her colleagues asked themselves before opening Genspace, a nonprofit DIYbio lab in Brooklyn devoted to citizen science, where amateurs can go and tinker with biotechnology. Far from being a sinister Frankenstein’s lab (as some imagined it), Genspace offers a long list of fun, creative and practical uses for DIYbio. Ellen Jorgensen is at the leading edge of the do-it-yourself biotechnology movement, which brings scientific exploration and understanding to the masses. - TED

A marvelous piece. I had never considered molecular biology as a mass pursuit, and the idea of developing "open-source" experiments is great.
