A quick guide on how to learn the biology necessary for biohacking.

UPDATE 02/20/2012: Added 20 more genes.

UPDATE 01/13/2013: Updated for iGEM.

UPDATE 06/02/2014: Making a distinction between the two definitions of biohacking.

UPDATE 01/07/2015: Tumblr’s Dead. Making a long-overdue migration.

UPDATE 01/22/2016: Updated the list of sites thanks to a revival of the Boston-area biohacking scene.

UPDATE 06/30/2017: Out of respect, I’ve removed mention of a specific biohackerspace.
