Topic: Open Source Biohacking
Just as personal computers opened a new world of creativity by liberating computing from monolithic corporations, there is a movement of citizen scientists creating open source devices to make the well understood techniques of DNA analysis available to everyone, not just to molecular biologists.
Bio hacking can be used for useful things such as engineering algae for biofuels, bacteria that glows when its in the presence of arsenic, determining if vegetables are contaminated with harmful bacteria such as E. Coli or Listeria, or seeing which neighbors’ dog has been
pooping on your lawn.
