London Biohackspace is a UK community biolab based at the London Hackspace. Our lab is based around open-source principles and community access, which allows the freedom for anyone to pursue collaborative or individual projects for which it would be difficult to seek funding from traditional, risk-averse bodies.
The strength of the biohacking and DIYbio community is the diversity of its members. London Biohackspace hopes to encourage enthusiastic amateurs and professionals with backgrounds in a broad mix of professions such as artists, engineers, biologists and programmers to carry out innovative bioscience projects. Anyone can get involved!
This short news segment filmed in 2012 (we have since moved to larger premises and upgraded our equipment significantly) gives a quite a good introduction about what the lab enables. You can also see more information about the lab and past projects on our wiki.
