Biologic DIY and bio printing
Alessandro Delfanti, Biohackers. The politics of open science . London: Pluto Press , 2013 Biohackers explores fundamental changes occuring in the circulation and ownership of scientific information. Alessandro Delfanti argues that the combination of the ethos of 20th century science, the hacker movement and the free software movement is producing an open science culture which redefines the relationship between researchers, scientific institutions and commercial companies. Biohackers looks at the emergence of the citizen biology community ‘DIYbio’, the shift to open access by the American biologist Craig Venter and the rebellion of the Italian virologist Ilaria Capua against WHO data-sharing policies.
A report on TechCrunch describes the work of two bio companies, Genome Compiler and Cambrian Genomics. They are developing hardware and software to design and print (the DNA) of new life forms. The idea is to provide software (that's Genome Compiler's part) that allows a designer to combine different gene sequences together into a new DNA string that has desired characteristics.

Most of people working in the field of biological or scientific research should greet the open hardware applications we are witnessing in this age of Garage Science.
But the goo is made of living cells, and the machine is “printing” a new body part.
