Are you curious about the new and rapidly expanding world of BioSynthesis or microbiology or genetic modification? If so then you are in the right place. Join us at an exciting phase of learn and expand, we are not worried about prior knowledge, it is curiosity and passion for science that we are looking for. We would concentrate mostly on DNA work but we already have a good compound digital camera 2000X Microscope for basic lab work. We have the PCR and electrophoresis and other basic equipment. We are non-commercial and do not work on larger than bacteria and no human DNA (except simulated "crime lab") We will not be keeping any animals (dead or alive) Microbiology is our area of interest. We will guide newcomers and most definitely welcome those with greater knowledge and lab experience to guide us. Meetings at present are ad hoc, experiments proceed as we get material. There is no cost to join at present but any newcomer using lab material will need to cover costs, and share new kits costs. Check Menu above to see other pages and start education.
Nelson-BC-DIYBio is in start-up phase, Laboratory equipment is in place. We are still at the Garage phase but seeking lab space in order to teach young students in the area. Membership is limited at this stage and follows a meeting for suitability. We have done one seminar with 20 attendees and some genetic modification of E.Coli.
