We’ve been extremely busy the past few months, and have a backlog of exciting stuff to blog about in addition to posts about what we are working on now. I’ll start adding a post or two per week, but here are some images to tide you over in the meantime:
We are still in the process of building out the lab and acquiring materials. Some of the things we have so far:
- PCRs (OpenPCR, and an OpenQPCR will be arriving soon.)
- OpenTrons Fluid handling robot
- Pipettors, tips,
- Misc plasticware & glassware
- Inexpensive digital scale
- Electrophoresis equipment
What we are working on building/obtaining next:
- Clean hood
- Plant tissue culture supplies
- Miniprep supplies
- Most of our communication is through the #diybio channel on slack.
- Biohacking Mailing list
- Biohacking Forum
- The familab diybio wiki
Hello! I am an alumni from the synthetic biology club at ucf. I am looking to start a kickstarter for a hackerspace and figured i would look and see if there was already a movenent going. We are looking to collaborate on growing your space and carry out some experiments. In the future it would be cool to find space for the iGEM team to work over the summer. What do you guys think?
Ryan, we have a few folks interested in the biohacking scene. If you can make it out to our Open House, we’d be happy to talk or you could post to our forums. :)
The last posts I can find are from July. Does this group still exist?
Yes! They’re definitely still around. Check the calendar for public events or join our Slack group and look for the #diybio channel.
Hi is the biohacking space still up and running? I would like to attend the July 14 event(s).
The lab is open, but only to current members for the time being and most public events have been canceled. You’re welcome to join our slack and join the channel #diybio to talk to some of our more active bio members.
