Is funding from government agencies like the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation required to do good science? Can we do good science without million dollar budgets? Thanks to the biohacker movement, it’s getting easier and easier to do good science on a shoestring budget. Come see how open source hardware, DIY instruction sets, inexpensive genetic services, 3D printing, online databases, and the hacker mentality can empower average people to do cutting edge biology and push the limits of what is possible. You too can explore your genome, test the integrity of your food, identify diseases, and maybe engineer your own biology!
