Our Goals

  1. Make DIY Biology more accessible to more people. Handhold people through the early stages of involvement in the movement and avoid intimidating them.
  2. Bring together disparate parts of the DIY Biology community into a single collaborative online space.
  3. Highlight the best DIY Biology educational materials on the internet.


Project Based Approach


Forum vs. Mailing List vs. Facebook Group

Mailing lists are inaccessible to new users and are largely an outdated form of community. They are more popular in older circles, but are unintuitive to less tech-savvy users. Their functionality is mimicked in our forum subscribe features. DIY Biology already has lots of mailing lists, we are offering an alternative.

Facebook groups are difficult to manage and collate as their size grows larger. In addition they are inaccessible to users who choose not to use facebook.
