So... if you look around the room everything in this room is hackable, except for the living stuff. You know... the wood, the air has been conditioned, the building that we're in... but the living things aren't readily hackable, and so what I'd like to do is to bring you up to speed on the current state of the art in engineering biology and see where that goes. My hope is that I'll get answers to two questions and also be able to leave the room. So the two questions I have: Will there be bioliogical hackers, I think the answer is yes, if there aren't already. And the second question is: Will there be a community around biological hacking? I'll come back to these at the end.

So, this question from before, reprogramming E-coli to smell nice, was one of the student projects, and here is the team that did it; ther're five teenagers...


The speaker is Drew Endy, involved in the OpenWetWare initiative and co-founder of the BioBricks foundation. He is talking at 'The Chaos Communication Congress' in Berlin last year. It's an hour long and the sound is a bit out of sync.
The title is '24C3 - Programming DNA - #2329'

Thank you. It's a classic talk that one. I was watching another talk a while ago by professors at MIT addressed to their alumni. It was full of praise for Endy and this new field "Biological Engineering" which he was one of the founders of. The feeling I got then was that MIT wanted to see biological engineering as the next big focus for the university. With Endy at Stanford now, maybe they will now become for biological engineering what MIT was for computer science.
