Welcome to the Hackuarium community's wiki.
As you might notice quickly, it is a work-in-progress. This page was launched during our 1st Ever Hackuarium Wiki Sprint that took place on 7 December 2014.
What is DIY Bio?
DIY biology (Do-It-Yourself biology) is a movement that wants to free the practice of biological research and innovation from the institutional and industrial laboratories. Pursued both by amateur and professional biologists, DIY biology is developing low-cost and low-tech solutions to problems identified by the community.
The movement is characterised by an extremely diverse set of practices and participants. Some call themselves 'biohackers', in reference to the hacker culture.
