An Institution for the Amateur Biologist

It’s grown from a small experiment with 5 teams in 2004 to the largest community and conference of synthetic biologists in the world (with over 200 teams competing in 2013). I’m on the organizing committee for the new track – the “Community Labs” track – and I’m terrifically excited about the opportunity the iGEM competition provides for growing DIYbio. I was asked to make the announcement at the recent iGEM World Jamboree, and below you can read a rough transcript of what I said. NYC. About Us Genspace was founded in 2009 by a group of enthusiasts who share one thing in common: a passion for biology.


We come from different professions—artists, engineers, writers, biologists—but we all collaborate, learn and “do” biology together. Unlike traditional institutions, we see our diversity of backgrounds as our strength. It gives us our unique perspective to both teach and innovate. In the summer of 2010, we built the first-ever community laboratory, a facility where we design workshops, train students and innovate new technologies. Turning Geek Into Chic. Biohackers.
