Here’s a belated notice for those able to make last-minute flightplans. This weekend, the Manchester Madlab are hosting a DIYbio Summit, and the lineup looks great. You can book places for the DIYbio Summit on Eventbrite; please come if you’re able, there’s already a great crowd due to attend. As for Indie Biotech, yours truly will be giving a 30 minute keynote on the first day. I’ll also be helping to facilitate several workshops over the weekend, with plans ranging from in-silico gene design (or, “How do I go from Concept to Ordered DNA?”), a rundown on Irish GMO Licensing Law (which is rather similar to the UK system), and assisting Brian Degger of Transitlab.org in giving a Webcam-Microscope hacking workshop.
Dear all, there will be a DIYbio meetup in the cafe of the Science Gallery (Pearce Street, Dublin) tomorrow at 2pm. The event is better documented here, with a list of currently registered attendees: [http://diybiodublin.eventbrite.com] It’s free and informal. If you like DIYbio to some extent and you’re free, please come along! The point? To meet, greet, and perhaps discuss not-so-weighty matters like forming a regional identity for Irish DIYbio. I’ve been informed by the great people at the Science Gallery that they’ll be closing early to prepare for their next exhibition, so the event is set to begin at 2 and end at 4.
