  1. 1. ON EXPERIMENTING WITH OTHERS. THE RISE OF DIWO SCIENCE ERI GENTRY| [email_address] | @ERIGENTRY
  2. 2. WWBD? What would Bill (Gates) do? “If I were a teenager today, I’d be hacking biology… Creating artificial life with DNA synthesis. That’s sort of the equivalent of machine-language programming.” - In an interview by Steven Levy, author of Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution
  3. 4. Growing Communities of Citizen Scientists
  4. 5. A collaborative, collegiate environment. BioCurious doesn’t take IP. A place for education, collaboration, and innovation . Biotech: today, cheap enough to exist outside of university and corporate labs. And people are interested! What we need is a place to work, learn and have fun… safely. This is what BioCurious will bring. BioCurious? Experiment with friends. The Bay Area Community lab / non-profit Biotech hackerspace.
  5. 6. Biohacks: fun and function
  6. 7. Webcam Microscope
  7. 8. Open Source Scanning-Tunneling Electron Microscope (STM) Sacha De'Angeli
  8. 9. The Dremelfuge Cathal Garvey
  9. 10. Pearl Biotech Tito Jankowski
  10. 12. Homemade Incubator
  11. 13. DIY Microbial Fuel Cell Abbie Groff
  12. 14. Homemade Clean Bench
  13. 15. Homemade Shaker
  14. 17. First iGEM competition, Summer 2004 5 teams
  15. 18. 2010 iGEM competition 130 teams, 2000 partcipants
  16. 19. 2009 Winners: Cambridge E. Chromi: Pigment-changing bacteria
  17. 20. University of Virginia 2009 iGEM team The “Arsenic Sponge.” GOOD! Arsenic. BAD!
  18. 21. 2008 Winners: Slovenia H. Pylori Vaccine
  19. 22. Open Source Standard Biological Parts
  20. 23. $235 Ginkgo BioWorks and New England BioLabs
  21. 24. “ Dry” group experiments
  22. 25. This is your brain. This is your brain on butter. (no offense)
  23. 26. Butter Mind . 21 days. 45 participants asking “will eating butter make me smarter?” Seems like. But, like any good research study, we’re doing it again. Butter Mind 2 coming soon…
  24. 28. You’re invited!: SpikerBox – Neuroscience for everyone Wed, March 9 th , 6.30p @ Hacker Dojo. more at meetup.com/biocurious
