Summary of DIYbio event

New definition of DIYbio: people doing strange things in their kitchens and bathrooms?
“My home is my lab” movement?

We tasted paleolithic diet thanks to hacked rice cookers, confused some taste buds with miraculine, explored relations between necrophilia & microscopes with a help of dead Kongo flies, edited the fastest ever porn video “Sex, flies and videotape” and ended up with bio-terrorism.
