There are currently several projects being developed in parallel in and around London, aiming to give access to tools and techniques normally used by bioscience professionals to those outside the discipline. These range from community run labs, labs designed for low cost biotech development, to biolabs built for use by artists as well as a portable lab-in-a-box designed to be used by complete beginners in schools or at home. The shared hope amongst these projects is to open up the tools of biology to those outside the discipline in order to enable exciting collaborations and give rise to inventive projects.

This afternoon forum is an opportunity for those involved in these projects (researchers, educators, hackers, and innovators) to share their approaches and experience on opening biology beyond the formal discipline.

There will be a tour of London Biohackspace for all those interested in the workings of a community run biolab.
