Transcript of New Biohacker material 2016 4

What Biohackers Do
DNA barcoding is an identification method that uses a short genetic sequence in an organism's DNA to identify it as belonging to a particular species. This first class, in a series of DNA barcoding classes, will identify an unknown fish from a small (0.5 cc) sample of uncooked fish muscle tissue.

This hands-on class is appropriate for high school teachers, community college instructors, and other interested individuals, that want to learn and/or teach DNA Barcoding.

The Fish DNA Barcoding Class is a workshop that allows determining the species of a fish sample based on its DNA sequence. This exercise is an opportunity for participants to bring an uncooked fish sample and perform an investigation into their local area to see if marketplace substitution is occurring, or to develop the skills to participate in the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) initiative and contribute scientific data to the Barcode of Life Database (BOLD). The class involves basic laboratory techniques such as DNA isolation, PCR, gel electrophoresis, and sequencing.

Life is an amazing technology with the potential to transform our world. Unfortunately the fundamental tools of biotechnology have been less than accessible to those who want to do so: biohackers, students, scientists on a budget, those with the clearest of needs but limited capital or know-how, and the creatives and inventors who imagine new ways of tackling old problems.

We make tools for these kinds of people.
