Are you a DIY Biologist?

Sure. Most of my lab work happens in the kitchen, but sometimes in other settings as well. Right now I am interested in the genetics of smuts, mushrooms and heirloom vegetables. I cooked with GloFish: http://www.glowingsushi.com and gave a fun talk about food at a hacker conference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cxsl2yUe0mc

What would you like to learn from this meetup?

What other people are up to, and what non-intuitive techniques and organisms can be brought into the kitchen / culinary space.

Introduction

I am an artist who works with the Center for Genomic Gastronomy (www.genomicgastrono­my.com). We study the genomes and biotechnologies that make up the human food systems on planet earth. Right now we are working in the Netherlands with DA4GA.nl
