Building Open Source BioHacking

(Hat tip to Annalee Newitz and her great new I09 blog) MIT biology professor Drew Endy’s “Programming DNA” lecture at the Chaos Communications Congress in Berlin. “This talk will introduce current best practice in biological engineering, including an overview of how to order synthetic DNA and how to use and contribute standard biological parts to an open source collection of genetic functions. The talk will also discuss issues of human practice, including biological safety, biological security, ownership, sharing, and innovation in biotechnology, community organization, and perception across many different publics. My hope is that the conferees of 24C3 will help me to understand how to best enable an overwhelmingly constructive hacker culture for programming DNA.”
