Right or Risk? The 1st Public BioBrick: Exploring Public Access to the Tools of Synthetic Biology

  • Location:
    Grant Museum of Zoology, 21 University Street, London, WC1E 6DE, GB

Synthetic Biology is turning genetic engineering into a simple exercise, with thousands of DNA components - BioBricks - available to program bacteria. What if ordinary citizens want access to these tools?

Now, for the first time, UCL have teamed up with a group of ‘biohackers’ (citizen scientists in molecular biology) to create the world’s first ‘Public BioBrick’.

Join us for an evening exhibition and Q&A hosted by UCL iGEM with C-LAB.

Grant Museum of Zoology, 24th September, 7-8.30pm
Free drinks will be served (with a unique molecular science twist!)
