Biohackers. The politics of open science | Alessandro Delfanti 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.

DIY Bio Europe - Community of European DIY Biologists DIY Bio Europe - Community of European DIY Biologists Dear all, On the 15th of October, a DIYbio Europe event will take place in Brussels with the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Network. COST is one of the longest-running European frameworks supporting cooperation among scientists and researchers across Europe. The program of the day is to first gather biohackers and researchers together and start debating and acting on possible collaborations. Citizen Science will take more and more […] Continue
Young Engineer of the Year builds his own genetics lab – video | Science Young Engineer of the Year builds his own genetics lab – video | Science Fred Turner, Young Engineer of the Year 2013, describes how he built his own PCR machine and other equipment for a home gene-sequencing lab. As he explains, new PCR machines (for amplifying tiny quantities of DNA) cost more than £2,000, so he set himself the task of designing and assembling one from scratch. His first research project aims to pinpoint the gene that has led to his mother and brother having ginger hair, while he doesn't. The 2013/14 National Science and Engineering Competition is now open for entries

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.

Body Hacking : “Je me modifie, donc je suis” Cyril Fiévet (@cfievet) ne nous est pas inconnu. Ancien journaliste pour InternetActu de 2003 à 2006, il fut l’un des blogueurs français les plus prolixes du début des années 2000 avec son blog, Pointblog, son livre BlogStory et son magazine, Netizen, qui avaient tout trois l’ambition de montrer au grand public ce qu’était ce phénomène alors naissant. Cyril Fiévet s’intéresse depuis des années aux technologies. Editeur et traducteur pour Fyp éditions, il vient de signer Body Hacking, un livre très documenté sur la démarche volontaire de modifier son propre corps, “notamment en lui adjoignant des composants artificiels, dans le but de transformer son comportement naturel”. En nous amenant à la rencontre de ces premiers pirates d’eux-mêmes, Fiévet ouvre une boîte de pandore, esquissée philosophiquement par les transhumanistes, qui nous fait passer concrètement de la science-fiction à la plus concrète réalité.

Les 20-21-22 et 23 octobre derniers avait lieu l'événement Toulouse Numérique au musée toulousain des Abattoirs qui clôturait le festival de la Novela . Le FabLab de Toulouse, Artilect était présent et animait ça première FabLab Toulouse Conference . Très beau programme. Beaucoup de succès et d'enthousiasme de la part des visiteurs. Une présentation du Bio-FabLab a été faite samedi. Artilect FabLab Blog | Blog du Fab Lab Artilect (Toulouse) Artilect FabLab Blog | Blog du Fab Lab Artilect (Toulouse)
Medical aid is a good story. We’ve all seen articles about well-meaning groups donating X-ray machines and incubators to needy clinics in the developing world. What we don’t see are those same devices when they fail as little as six months later — or even dead on arrival — because they weren’t designed to operate in these environments. About 90% of medical technology that reaches poor countries is hand-me-down equipment designed for first-world facilities. “Design For Hack” in Medicine “Design For Hack” in Medicine
Creating Transient Cell Membrane Pores Using a Standard Inkjet Printer A description of the methods used to convert an HP DeskJet 500 printer into a bioprinter. The printer is capable of processing living cells, which causes transient pores in the membrane. These pores can be utilized to incorporate small molecules, including fluorescent G-actin, into the printed cells. Creating Transient Cell Membrane Pores Using a Standard Inkjet Printer

'Printing' human organs with 3D bio-printer
La première communauté de biologistes hackers a vu le jour il y a quelques mois en France. Greffés au /tmp/lab, entre la Gaieté Lyrique et les locaux de l'Electrolab à Nanterre ils défrichent la génétique, pour le bien du citoyen. Un bain-marie, des agitateurs, une centrifugeuse, deux frigos (dont un pour les bactéries), une machine PCR (polymerase chain reaction, réaction en chaîne par polymérase, qui permet de séquencer le génome)… Tout le matériel, ou presque, accumulé par La Paillasse, le premier biohacklab français, vient de Génopôle, LE lieu de la recherche en génétique en France. Un donateur institutionnel et généreux dont la directrice de la recherche salue la « démarche citoyenne » des défenseurs du DIY (Do It Yourself, faites-le vous même) et de l’open source. « Il nous manque encore les consommables, des enzymes, des bactéries. Les bio-bidouilleurs s’enracinent

Screen Your Genome Under $512, Open Sourcing Biology With OpenPCR Davide Gomba — July 7th, 2011 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. From the Phduino to the DIY Oscilloscopes, through STM (Scanning-Tunneling Electron Microscope), Arduino is getting used to prototype tools that used to be more expensive and possibly unavailable some years ago. OpenPCR is an amazing project aimed to bring the genome analysis to a desktot experience. Blog » Blog Archive » Screen Your Genome Under $512, Open Sourcing Biology With OpenPCR
