Genecraft Biohack

Our Genecraft Biohack is an event for creatives, scientists, artists and the intrigued to come together and creatively explore what humanity might look like in the future.

The 2016 Space Biohack was a sellout success drawing people from across the UK and overseas for a day of experiments, talks and DNA sonification. The Genecraft Biohack is the second edition of this annual event and will be focusing on genetics.

Synthetic biology, a relatively young discipline, operates with the task of redesigning the living world. The field holds immense promise, but also unprecedented risks, as we move from genetically editing food crops to engineering embryos. New technologies play with the very fabric of life in a quest towards optimizing and upgrading the body. In this context, the Biohack will offer hands-on workshops and discussions urging participants to consider the potential roles and implications of new developments in the field of genetics.
