Welcome to Hackteria.org

Hackteria is a collection of DIY Biology, Open Source Art Projects that use Biology,LifeSciences,Biotechnology.

Project 1: The Bacterial Net- Microbial Telecommunications.

Quorum sensing is a type of decision-making process used by decentralized groups to coordinate behavior. Many species of bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate their gene expression according to the local density of their population.The Bacterial Net attempts to transfer this decision making process over the Internet. Using Microcontollers and sensors to detect bacterial population and a public web service http://www.pachube.com that helps transfer sensor information. The Bacterial Net is an exploration in bringing the Internet into the Natural Ecosystem.

Project 2: Bioelectronix

Integrating electronics into biological culture devices needs different approaches. the use of silicone-rubbers for sealing off the wet/humid bio-part from the silicon circuits and sensors allows the making of hybrid bioelectronic devices.

Project 3: Synthetic Biology for Artists and Designers: A primer
Project 4: ArtScience IGEM team
Project 5: DIY microscopy

a small hack to the optics of a standard webcam with an adjustable focus-lens, allows to create video data, with a magnification of around 100 to 400x (depending on the model) at a working distance of a few mm. The highest magnifications can be achieved by inverting (putting upside down) the lens. Addition of good lighting by the use of leds allows to create images using a bright-field method (shine through the stuff) or dark field method (look at the reflections and scattering).

Project 6:DIY $25 Gel Box
