It's a free conference, it's held in the webworks in Cork City Center, and there'll be a ton of other interesting talks.
My own talk will be a 35 minute affair, and I'll be covering the “why” of Synthetic Biology, some crucial elements of Bacterial Physiology (specifically B.subtilis) you'll need to know to get started, and some information on how you can set up and get started performing synthetic biology experiments at home or with friends.
To that end, I'll be covering the Ethics of DIYbio, Garage Biotech and Synthetic Biology and I'll offer some legal information on what your responsibilities are as a Biohacker in Ireland.
After the talk will be another Q&A and debate session. No thrown fruit, please.
If you're unable to come and take part, don't fret. I'll arrange the recording of the entire session, and it'll be put up here and on my new, Garage-Biotech Dedicated site indiebiotech.com!
