(DIY)biology: Designing for Open Source Science

Jen Southern is a digital artist/sociologist. She is currently doing ethnographic research at Madlab, particularly looking at their DIYbio work.

Rod Dillon is a bioscientist working with artists on bioarts projects. For instance, working with Gina Czarnecki, he has set up a cic called labc. Part of the intention at Lancaster is to set up a wet lab for artists who want to work with potentially biohazardous materials. He also happens to work on insects that spread a tropical disease in his lab research.
