crosswalk DIYBio for biohackers

Mac Cowell recently started the site DIYBio as a resource for biohackers working outside academic and industrial labs.

DIYbio is an organization that aims to help make biology a worthwhile pursuit for citizen scientists, amateur biologists, and DIY biological engineers who value openness and safety. This will require mechanisms for amateurs to increase their knowledge and skills, access to a community of experts, the development of a code of ethics, responsible oversight, and leadership on issues that are unique to doing biology outside of traditional professional settings.

One of their current projects is the BioWeatherMap, where you can help compare microbes on crosswalk buttons worldwide. Check out the Instructable about the process!
