Let's get together for some DIYBio and biotechnology! This is a group where anyone can learn about genetics, biology, or tech. We will do anything from extracting our own DNA to using CRISPR, programming with DNA, and making homemade gel electrophoresis devices. No technical experience or biology knowledge required, and all skill and age levels are welcome! Join us to learn and work with biotechnology, collaborate with others, and embark on some exciting biotech projects. We welcome independent researchers, biohackers, citizen scientists, and curious members of the public alike!
The mission of the BioHackSpace Philly community lab is to encourage local residents to engage with biotechnological projects and materials, learn laboratory techniques and procedures, and facilitate an environment where anyone can work on and learn about biotechnology, thereby promoting science and research literacy through citizen access to biotechnology.
