Grow Your Own Genetically-Engineered Bacteria

Want to make the goo in a petri dish spell out the words "Hello World"? Now you can. Biopunk provocateur Quinn Norton is writing a five-part series for O'Reilly Radar about how you can start hacking yourself and your friends for fun (and, occasionally, profit). If her excellent introduction to biohacking isn't enough for you, download this Open Biohacking Kit from Sourceforge and get started with making glow-in-the-dark bacteria in your garage.
