Genomic integrity is a new 'big picture' concept to aid public health efforts and basically includes all the molecular genetic details of cells! So many things we commonly choose to do can impact genomic integrity, also potentially affecting future generations!

At the Hackuarium, AGiR! hopes to really get some citizen science action going - developing DIYbio methods to readily assay cells for DNA damage, using classic (circa 1980s) techniques. If they can sell it as a kit, it may also be simple to make open source efforts!
