After a warm welcome from all the great people at Todays Art we headed off to Amsterdam for the DIY Bio community meet up at Waag Society: institute for art, science and technology. Once there, Pieter van Boheemen introduced us to all the facilities and amazing projects taking place in this open wet laboratory. Since it was our first time we went in to a safety and introduction course and after passing the test we obtained our Open Wetlab Security Certificate.
The main objective of our visit is to initiate ourselves in the world of microbiology, bioelectricity and to first-hand experience this biotech DIY communities rising all over the world. Next meet up we’ll start with bacterial culture techniques and electric readings.
