Interfacing electronics to it, and mimicking it in electronics.
Designed and built 8-bit microcomputer in Gymnasium (German high school). Learned IC design while piling academic degresse high & deep at ETH Zürich. Worked in various places in corporate America. Learned flying. Learned about hackerspaces from Mitch Altman at BIL 2008. I'm mostly familiar with electronics hacking; would like to do some icky wet stuff, too.
Geek of Physics and Electrical Engineering, occasional electronics hacker, instrument rated pilot. At the moment playing bioengineering postdoc at UCSD, supposed to build electronic brains.
Well organized introduction to DIY biology and genomics
