We are testing out a new way to keep the community together with these talks. However using the space at Greenlab has a cost which we need to cover. We hope you understand that charging a little allows these events to continue.

London Biohackspace is a community-run molecular biology and microbiology lab based at the London Hackspace. To give you some idea of what we do, recent projects have included genetic modification of yeast, a cyanobacteria growing workshop, SNP testing, and sequencing DNA found in soil. We provide access to lab equipment and bench space to be used safely in individual or collaborative projects.

The lab is currently in hibernation but we will continue the invited talk series. We hope these gatherings will also provide a place to discuss projects, ideas and techniques of your own.
