Thomas Landrain - Biohacking: when biotech breaks free
The future of biotech is maybe not where we expect it. The cost of innovation in traditional and institutional biotech is too high. Amateurs around the world self-claimed the right to explore what biology has to offer outside institutional settings. This is the world of biohacking.
In his talk, Thomas Landrain presents how and why biohacking has emerged; he explains what is a biohackerspace by taking La Paillasse as an exemple. Among several exemples of biohacking projects, he talks a bit more extensively about the interest of bioproduction by presenting the first home application of biotech: growing your own biological ink.
