  Visiting the Grant Museum of Zoology

Grant Museum of Zoology

Along with UCL iGEM, we are hosting the event Right or Risk? The 1st Public BioBrick: Exploring Public Access to the Tools of Synthetic Biology at the Grant Museum of Zoology - the only remaining university zoological museum in London. 

Grant Museum of Zoology

Amidst the skeletons, preserved remains of creatures in jars and taxidermy specimens, the museum provides a fascinating, if not contrasting thematics to this public event involving synthetic biology.

Adding to this mix, today's excursion was about taking measurements and thinking about how synthetic biology fits in amongst these displays by contemplating evolution and life as a source of material interchangability.

Looking up - 'they' were looking down - an evolutionary gang of four...certain to join us and investigate if this technology should be made public.
