  London Hackspace at UCL Cruciform Lab

London Hackspace at UCL Cruciform Lab

After visiting London Hackspace with UCL iGEM it was time to return the favour by inviting them to UCL's Cruciform LabLondon Hackspace have been working with the UCL iGEM team to generate the world's first public BioBrick™.

The 'biohackers' were introduced to more formal methods of working such as getting to grips with pipetting, running a gel, UV documentation and basic working lab practices.

The workshop with the 'biohackers' is part of UCL iGEM's attempt to challenge public accessibility of standardised biological components (BioBricks™).

In preparation for the event Right or Risk? The 1st Public BioBrick: Exploring Public Access to the Tools of Synthetic Biology, the 'biohackers' are learning methods of synthetic biology to extract a gene that will be submitted to the Registry of Standardised Parts.

Their gene of choice? A gene allowing bacteria to confer better frost resistance.
