For almost 8 years we have left the structure of our wiki main page they way we set it up on the first day... this is about to change now! If you are still looking for it, here you go to the Old Main Page

|Generic Lab Equipment
To start up an independent and open lab it is crucial to get affordable lab equipment (besides having an enthusiastic and open group of people, see How to start a BioLab). Most of the tools we use are do it your self (DIY) and open source and are built from widely available and recycled parts found in consumer products such as DVD drives, hard disks and pc fans.
We bring DIY (do it yourself) and DIWO (do it with others) approaches as well as an open source based ‘hacker spirit’ into soil ecology. We invite you to reflect on current scientific discourses and critical societal challenges through hands-on tinkering and curiosity driven research. We are building a network of soil enthusiasts for long-term collaborative research and invite YOU to join us.

About the International Hackteria Society
Under the name “International Hackteria Society”, is an association according to article 60ff of the Swiss Civil Code (ZGB) with seat in Zürich. The association aims to guarantee the organizational and financial processes of the project “Hackteria | Open Source Biological Art”. It wants to further development and access to practical knowledge in artistic engagement with the lifesciences. It wants to create platforms for public discussions and invite international artists and scientists for critical and theoretical discourse. The association works as a non- profit organization to reach its aims.

On Going NOW
Join us for a deeper engagement on various methods of germline interventions. The germline is the river of heredity (i.e. sperm, ova, zygote) that you as a human are a part of. A gene from a non-human would need to be inserted into the river of humanity to make that person and their descendants interspecies transgenic. We will introduce DIY tools & toys for playful speculations on who, how and where we can envision our future offspring human /non-human watermelon inheritable post-species palettes. Through a collaborative and performative workshop, Marc Dusseiller aka dusjagr, Megan Daalder and Adam Zaretsky, will guide the group throughout the evening.
Schedule: 6 – 9 pm, Friday 22nd Feb 2019
Welcome to the Odin Biohacking 101 Class in gene-editing discussion and hands-on session from 9.1.-24.4.2019 Swiss Edition.
Four months of remote cooking, learning, sewing for future gatherings. Various locations in and around Zurich and other spaces across Switzerland.
... stay tuned!

See new Project page Collection of DIY Biology, Open Source Art Projects and here you find the Old Main Page for now... until we made a new structure here in the front.
But because this one is such a claaassiiic! We leave it here for reflection...
|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.
