Here I introduce IndieBB, my project to create a beginner's kit for biotechnology. IndieBB will be Free/Libre / Open Source DNA, permitting you to engineer bacterial cells as easily as possible to make them bright fluorescent green, while also letting you develop your own projects upon it.
IndieBB does as much of the hard work for you, obviating the need to use antibiotics and other strange ingredients, and letting you focus on the main event; engineering your first fluorescent cells and learning about biotechnology in a hands-on way.
IndieBB is being crowdfunded through IndieGoGo! If you want to see this in the real world, your help will be critical to success! http://igg.me/at/yourfirstgmo
