Join us for a social night of biohacking-inspired activities and 
presentations. This will be the first in a series of events over the 
next six months to bring together the DIY Bio-interested community here 
in Berlin and build momentum for opening a public biohackspace in late 
2016. Come hang out and have a DNAquiri!

Saturday, April 16 at 6:30 PM
@Schillerpalais. Schillerpromenade 4. 12049 Berlin

We kindly ask for a €5 donation, but we do not want this contribution to 
limit anyone’s ability to participate. In-kind donations through used 
lab equipment are welcome too!

Beginning at 1830h, the event includes:

#Cellfie Station
Lucy Patterson
Capture yourself in a new light (bring a smartphone).

Kitchen Lab Installation (you may still donate your artwork, see website 
for more information)
As the top e.V. crew packs up their kitchen lab to head to Stockholm for 
the Supermarket fair, artworks contributed to the space around the 
kitchen as laboratory theme will be on display.

Book presentation and reading with Rüdiger Trojok
Biohacking – Genetic engineering for all, Franzis Verlag

Lesung auf Deutsch: For years now, a global scene of civil scientists 
working on modern biology has been growing, and their work is generally 
known as biohacking. For all those interested, and newcomers to the 
subject, this should serve as a guide book for basic understanding of 
the world of molecular biology. Starting with the beginning of life, the 
history of evolution is explained in broad terms by the present state of 
knowledge, alongside practical examples on how to apply theoretical 
knowledge. Using advanced software, synthetic biology can rewrite the 
digital code of life. With this new ability, we now face a public debate 
on how to deal meaningfully with this knowledge and the resultant 
technical possibilities.
