on DIY Gene Editing and the Cannibal Pharmacon:
A Cookbook for Irrational Medicine
In this expertless, unguided workshop, we'll try out the new gene editing technique CRISPR in order to produce resistant bacteria; splice the genetics of yeast with jellyfish to make it glow; and compile a cookbook of home remedies from participants' personal experience, cataloging cures and palliatives that are considered illegitimate or unproven by the scientific community.
