BioCoder is a quarterly newsletter for DIYbio, synthetic bio, and anything related. You’ll discover:
Articles about interesting projects and experiments, such as the glowing plant
Articles about tools, both those you buy and those you build
Visits to DIYbio laboratories
Profiles of key people in the community
Announcements of events and other items of interest
Safety pointers and tips about good laboratory practice
Anything that’s interesting or useful: you tell us!
And BioCoder is free (for the time being), unless you want a dead-tree version. We’d like BioCoder to become self supporting (maybe even profitable), but we’ll worry about that after we’ve got a few issues under our belt.
If you’d like to contribute, send email to BioCoder@oreilly.com. Tell us what you’d like to do, and we’ll get you started.
