Identify the DIYbio model organism.

  • It needs to be safe, forgiving, interesting, and available
  • Candidates include yeast (humanity has a long history of engineering it, and it's commonly available), moss (p. patens?), E. coli (good because it's well understood, bad because it could be pathogenic)

TODO: Add lists of possible organisms, studies of said organisms, and desirable properties of DIYbio model organism(s).
