What we're about

Dallas Makerspace is an organized group of local artists, engineers, DIYers, makers, and thinkers who work together to collect tools and resources for our membership, who could not otherwise afford, store, or use them individually.

We lease an industrial building and use it as a shared workspace to collaborate on a variety of individual and community projects that promote science and technology.

If you are a "maker", then Dallas Makerspace is the best place in Dallas to find like minded people who share your interests. You might find Dallas Makers working and experimenting on innovative ideas which may very well lead to the next world-changing technological revolution or spark the beginning of a billion dollar business plan!

Our weekly Tour Night is the best time to meet other Makers and get a tour of the Makerspace. The event is open to the public and starts at 7:00pm every Thursday. Be sure to bring any special projects that you would like to show off to the rest of the group. For more information, or if you would like to become a member of Dallas Makerspace, please see the DMS website: http://www.dallasmakerspace.com/ On the 2nd Thursday of each month at 8pm, there is also an official meeting with a set agenda and voting on matters concerning the Makerspace.

Biohacking: GMO Detection Day 1/3

Dallas Makerspace

REGISTER FOR ALL 3 Classes REGISTER and pay ON MAKERSPACE CALENDAR https://calendar.dallasmakerspace.org/events/view/10419 class 1/3 required 3 Day Course!!!! The GMO Investigator™ Kit uses PCR and DNA electrophoresis to test for the presence of two different GMO-associated DNA sequences: the 35S promoter of the cauliflower mosaic virus and the terminator of the nopaline synthase gene of Agrobacterium tumefaciens. These DNA sequences are present in >85% of the GM crops that are approved for distribution worldwide. As a control for the integrity of the plant DNA extracted from food, PCR is used to amplify a section of the photosystem II chloroplast gene that is common to most higher plants. Students engage in a complete investigation in which they gather sample food items from the grocery store, extract DNA from the samples, amplify the DNA using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and use agarose gel electrophoresis to identify the presence or absence of amplified GMO sequences. https://www.bio-rad.com/en-us/product/gmo-investigator-kit?ID=1128f1a0-662c-4450-ad12-1b3634f4f18b
