DIYBio meeting this Wednesday

Dear carbon-based life forms,

the Space Agency would like to cordially invite you to the first installment of the monthly DIYBio Berlin meetup this Wednesday, March 7th, 19 o'yay local time.

As you may well know, DIYBio is a movement centered around getting biotech out into the open and into the hands of your average hacker, interested layperson, and passionate citizen scientist.

There has been a small biolab at the Space Agency for a while, but it's been a very lonely place for some time now, and it's time to get interested people together and talking to each other. For this purpose, there'll be a monthly meetup every first Wednesday of the month at the fabulous Space Agency.

Whether you're interested in actual bench work, bioinformatics, visualization porn, tinkering on electronics to make DIY lab equipment, or just conceptual work - it's all welcome.

A very rough agenda for this first meeting:

  • Get to know each other
  • Find out what each of us is interested in
  • Take stock of what equipment is available
  • Discuss project ideas
  • Brainstorm on the possibility of starting a Berlin DIYBio lab where more than one person at a time can actually work
  • Cake.

See you on Wednesday.

PS: Coordinates for the Space Agency: Gerichtstrasse 65, near S/U Wedding. Look for the big rocket sign and you'll find us.
