I've joined OpenWetWare to contribute protocols and standards that are useful to amateurs and undergraduates, and to share information on my activities at Indiebiotech.com at a more granular level than I share on my blog there.

Education

  • 2007, BSc (Genetics), N.U.I. Cork

Research interests

  1. Synbio platforms tailored for individuals; novel selection methods and equipment-minimal protocols
  2. Localised production of medicines; an "antibiotic suitcase" for the global village
  3. A self-replicating laboratory platform, inspired by the Reprap/Fablab

Current Work

Validating a custom-designed, high-stability, high-capacity, antibiotic-selection free plasmid for Bacillus subtilis, intended for Open Source development and routine use by amateurs or professionals.
