[Closes 23 June 2017] Apply now for the Biomaker Challenge!

last modified May 30, 2017 08:45 AM
Biomaker Challenge is a four-month programme challenging interdisciplinary teams to build low-cost sensors and instruments for biology. From colorimeters to microfluidics and beyond, we’re looking for frugal, open source and DIY approaches to biological experiments.
The challenge is open to students and staff at the University of Cambridge, John Innes Centre and the Earlham Institute. Participants will receive a Biomaker Toolkit and a discretionary budget for additional sensors, components, consumables and 3D-printing worth up to £1000.


For more information, to join a mixer event and to apply by 23 June 2017, see or email

Co-organised by: OpenPlant, Synthetic Biology SRI, CamBridgeSens.
