We are biohackers in Oakland starting an Open Science Lab where anyone can learn how to edit DNA! AMA
My short bio: We're launching a new biohacker space in Oakland, CA and some of us have been running another biohacker space in Sunnyvale, CA. We're here to answer questions about how science and genetic engineering can and must happen outside of academia and industry and to promote our kickstarter to fund the new lab

EDIT: We reached our Kickstarter Goal! Big thanks to everyone who supported us! Our first stretch goal is for a -80 degree centigrade freezer (important for long-term storage of cell cultures) at $5000 with just over two days left!
EDIT 2: Thank you for the gold anonymous!
EDIT 3: It's 2 am here so we're shutting down. Thanks for all the comments!
EDIT 4: Ok we decided to re-open the AMA. We might be slow to respond for a few hours but leave your question and we'll get to it as soon as we wake up!
EDIT 5: We somehow got tagged as "business". To avoid any confusion: We are a 100% volunteer-run non-profit dedicated to open science and engineering.
EDIT 6: 11 hours left on the kickstarter! We're doing one last push to see if we can reach our stretch-goal for a -80 C freezer! Thank you for all the questions!
Edit 7: Our kickstarter has ended. We're closing the AMA. Thanks to everyone!
