DIS'12 workshop in Newcastle, UK
(DIY)biology: Designing for Open Source Science

Zack Denfeld and Cat Kramer from the Center have recently completed the EDIBLE exhibition at the Science Gallery in Dublin Ireland. In addition to our roles as curators we presented work such as Smog Tasting which is an attempt to use food as a biosensor.

The Center for Genomic Gastronomy is an independent research institute that explores the genomes and biotechnologies that make up the human food systems of planet earth. The Center has presented its research through public lectures, research publications, meals and exhibitions on three continents. They have completed projects such as Glowing Sushi, Smog Tasting and Mutagenic Mist. In addition to their work with the Center, Cat & Zack have taught at various institutions, and recently helped mentor a undergraduate Synthetic Biology team at the Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore, India.
