What we're about

As technology becomes increasingly integrated with our physical, mental, and spiritual bodies, biohackers creatively question fundamental assumptions and expand the boundaries of possibility.

This group meets monthly and explores topics like:

• Home DNA extraction, sequencing and fingerprinting

• Home cell cultures (bacteria, fungal, plant, nematode, insect...)

• 3D printing biological tissue

• directed evolution techniques for terraforming and bioremediation

• insect/non-human consciousness

• traditional fermentation (kombucha, kefir, yogurt, bread, wine, cheese)

• hacking biometric identification systems

• brain-mind enhancement and new drugs

• digital biology and virtual evolution

• Biopiracy (unauthorized reproduction and distribution of copyrighted genomes)

• Bioart

I would like to join up with Austin hackerspaces, homeschoolers, and local labs and universities.

Upcoming events (1)

Share Your Stack! - Discussion on Longevity, Supplements, and Nootropics

Mozart's Coffee Roasters

Share your favorite supplements and sources with other health minded folks.
We will meet at Mozart Coffee's back porch - bring a jacket! Towards the end of the meetup, we will take a walk to Mount Bonnell for some fresh air and dazzling vistas.

Many biohackers have an extensive knowledge of what pills to take and which to avoid. Come share your favorites, or learn what to take and why.

This meetup is inspired from my recent trip to Roatan for Minicircle's follistatin experiment - listening to the study participants talk about their regimens was really mind blowing.

Bring a jacket - we will be sitting outside.

This event is a cross posting from the Research Collective.
