Right or Risk? The 1st Public BioBrick: Exploring Public Access to the Tools of Synthetic Biology


Grant Museum of Zoology (link Map)
21 University Street | London | WC1E 6DE |

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free of charge - please refer to Further information link to book yourself a place
Ticketing: Open

Synthetic Biology is turning genetic engineering into a simple exercise, with thousands of DNA components - BioBricks - available to program bacteria. What if ordinary citizens want access to these tools? Now, for the first time, UCL have teamed up with a group of ‘biohackers’ (citizen scientists in molecular biology) to create the world’s first ‘Public BioBrick’. Join us for an evening exhibition and Q&A hosted by UCL iGEM and c-lab.

Grant Museum of Zoology, 24th September, 7-8.30pm Free drinks will be served (with a unique molecular science twist!)

Please join us in the Jeremy Bentham Pub on University Street for a reception after the event.
