  • 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. 🙂

      Yes! They’re definitely still around. Check the calendar for public events or join our Slack group and look for the #diybio channel.
