This is your "bulletin board," your "water cooler," your community gathering area.


Once you've tried an experiment or watched a video posted here, please let us know what you've learned. Got data? Share it! If you've brainstormed a new idea for a synthetic cell, run it past the other BioBuilders who are trying these experiments too. If you have a question for a practicing scientist or engineer, you can ask here and hopefully someone from the community will respond...

    I am a interested in the "Eau that Smell" lab but was reading over the procedures and my school has a small incubator, but no shaker.

    I am interested in doing the labater in the year, but was wondering if you knew of any alternatives to the shaker.

    Thank you!

    The DNA and the strain are available through the iGEM Foundation and there are BioBuilder kits and videos to help you teach the materials. Contact us through info@biobuilder.org and we'll get you set
    up to run this with your class. Super exciting!!!

    I'm an expat teacher working at an international school in Indonesia. I would like to know where we can order or obtain Biobuilder kits here... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
