Synthetic Biology, Biohacking and Vegan Cheese - iGEM team meeting

  • June 9, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Ahnon's

Counter Culture Labs and our sister lab BioCurious in Sunnyvale are putting together a team for iGEM - the 10th international Genetically Engineered Machine competition. iGEM has been the premier breeding ground for synthetic biologists, and this is the first year they will also be accepting Community / DIYbio labs.

The topic we've chosen for our project is Vegan Cheese, expressing casein proteins in yeast - check out our wiki!

Feel free to come check us out, whether you are already part of the iGEM team or not. We're hoping to actually get work done in these meetings, so we will likely not give an extensive introduction to any newbies, but you're more than welcome to sit in and absorb some biohacking-in-action.  This is your opportunity to join a working iGEM team.  

For now, we will be meeting every first Monday of the month at BioCurious, and the other Mondays in Oakland.

    Hey I just found this group and happen to have quite a bit of background in the chemical physics of kappa casein so this strikes my fancy and I am happy to at least observe what's the action about.

    Is it okay that I just show up? Is there a special knock or something I should be wary of? Is there parking available for my bicycle or should I walk from BART?

    Also joining over zoom - my kid knocked his front tooth out on Sat. & had a root canal this afternoon. He's fine, but I'm still recovering from near-heart attack.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
