Synthetic Biology in Cambridge


Last year we heard from Brad Amos on smartphone cameras for microscopy and the marvellous WaterScope on their 3D-printed, Raspberry Pi camera. This year we're stepping up a notch to look at DIY approaches to better microscopes, from automation to novel imaging techniques and even some more expensive (not so DIY) kit that illustrates benefits of custom approaches to imaging.
