"Science for everyone" is the motto of a new movement involving biology and electronics. Here the do-it-yourself approach that is already well-established in the electronics and computer scene is applied to the field of natural sciences, often blurring the borderlines between science and art. The artists and scientists working in this interdisciplinary way refer to themselves as "bio-hackers" or "bio-punks" and deliberately take up the creative impetus provided by those two movements. Their research aims to communicate scientific knowledge that is otherwise acessable only for insiders and professionals.
HOME MADE BIO ELECTRONIC ARTS introduces important exponents of the movement and presents six simple do-it-yourself projects to experiment with.
