"Biohacking" Coming to "The Secret City"


Biodidact is a new DIY Biolab planning to open its doors to the public in Los Alamos, New Mexico, this coming Spring. Its founder has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, to enable the lab to open its doors to amateur scientists.

Los Alamos, NM, October 09, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Biohacking (or Do-It-Yourself Biology) is coming to New Mexico. Hands-on Biotechnology education is no longer just for academic and government laboratories.

Biodidact (a part of The Community Lab, LLC) will open its doors in Los Alamos, NM in early 2015. Biodidact will provide hands-on biotechnology training to amateur scientists.

This is an exciting opportunity for biotechnology and science education in New Mexico. It is part of a growing trend not only in the United States but also all over the world. Community labs are forming and engaging amateur scientists in the art of biotechnology.

The mix of experts and non-experts working together and being creative in these labs is already bearing fruits: working on developing patent-free anti-cancer drugs, replacing street lights with glowing trees, crowdsourcing plant DNA barcoding, to mention a few projects.

About Do It Yourself Biology
Do It Yourself Biology (DIY Biology) is a term referring to open-access biology experiments performed outside of mainstream university or government laboratories. The goal is to educate and form “citizen scientists,” by making hands-on biology safely accessible.

About Biodidact
Biodidact is a new community lab, the first DIY Biolab in Los Alamos, NM. It will open its doors to the broad community (individuals and schools) this Spring (2015).
