Synthetic Biology Project Director Discusses DIYBio on Kojo Nnamdi Show

Jul 09, 2011

Far from multimillion dollar labs at universities, an enthusiastic movement of amateur scientists is changing the field of biology. These do-it-yourself explorers are taking experiments from the lab table to their living room tables using only rudimentary equipment and innate curiosity. We look at what’s happening in this nascent branch of science, and explore concerns over “biohacking.”
