Software Development How fast can you get to
"Hello World"
with 2 guys & a laptop in a garage? a hackerspace for biotech

First and largest biohacker lab in the world

Committed to making biotech
accessible, affordable, and open to everyone

a place to "experiment with friends"

501c3 all-volunteer community lab, supported by monthly memberships and classes Let's do that for biotech Every Disease
is a
Rare Disease... Stephen Kingsmore &
Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine prepare samples

25.5 hrs
20.0 hrs ~ $10 000 per case
"very helpful" in 7 out of 9 cases so far Two Lessons
from being in
an exponential business Find an exponential trend,
then hitchhike A prototype beats a plan Product Development Process (PDP) typical product:
18 month development cycle,
9 month market life

make new & rev old products
core team leaders involved from start
phase-gated milestones
manage technical and business risk is now as easy as typing ...and about to get easier New Developments Nothing fades faster than last year's technology 2008

1 human exome

1 human "gene scan"
= $99 iGEM 2004 Closing Thoughts If it is made out of atoms,
in the future,
you will make it with biology. Or if you
unmake it... What does your industry
make or use? Intellectual Property (IP) is a mess...
...and no one knows what happens next. IP drives innovation
IP kills innovation
Where's the balance? Mobile/Sensors DNA Origami "Junk DNA" Genetic Engineering Industrial Human Food Pieter van Boheemen PGD

Arranging... Biology lacked an
organizing principle

Without predictive theory,
this was the only way to deal with such a complex subject matter Until... Better Tools Appeared

Gene doping "The GM debate is over... We no longer need to discuss whether or not it is safe — over a decade and a half with three trillion GM meals eaten, there has never been a single substantiated case of harm. You are more likely to get hit by an asteroid than to get hurt by GM food.” - Mark Lynas, GMO crop burning environmental activist "...There is no more risk
in GMO food than conventionally
farmed food." - Anne Glover,

is tomorrow's science fair project?

When tools that were in dozens of hands
are now in thousands of hands? bioprinter project We build things.. OpenPCR $599 DNA Copy Machine We mentor the
next generation
of scientists
and technologists We support inventors
and entrepreneurs We take safety
and security
seriously In the last year,
19 startup companies
have done work
and recruited partners

in the next 48 hours What can you do about
being at risk for
an unpreventable disease?!? It turns out, lots of things:

prevention - vitamins, avoid UV
testing - Amsler grid
new opthamologist
investigate clinical trials
support research
don't put off that trip to the Louvre until retirement... Try it... So What? Personal Example When I first found out about
my AMD risk
it was
"untreatable" & "incurable"
but Genentech
now has treatments available footnote
