Biohackers, Open Science & Community Labs (Counter Culture Labs)

hacherCommunity labs enable cutting-edge research on a shoe-string budget. Think of us as a germinator rather than an incubator, a place where wildly creative ideas can be nurtured and explored, but also a place to shake up some of the unexamined assumptions of the biotech industry, and where biotech professionals and novices alike can have the freedom to participate in projects for the Common Good without needing to sell their soul (or IP). We will present some of our successful community projects at Counter Culture Labs that have turned into international collaborations, such as Open Insulin, Real Vegan Cheese, and the Kombucha Genomics project, and have a spirited discussion around what it means to do Open Science.

Synthetic Biology Week takes place from Sunday September 30 to Saturday October 6, 2018 and brings together innovators, creators, and dreamers who are building a better world with biology. Synthetic Biology Week is a celebration of biological engineering in art, design, industry, and our daily lives. With activities ranging from lab tours to hikes to workshops and talks, there are hands-on activities and events for everyone to enjoy. Join us for the Global Synthetic Biology Summit for any of the wide range of free satellite events taking place at businesses, universities and event spaces throughout the Bay Area.
