        Centrifugation requires a series of choices critical to safety. • Which centrifuge? • Which rotor? • Which tubes and adapters? • What speed and for how long? • What level of containment? This video series provides guidance and instruction on how to control hazards associated with protocols and practices used in the modern biology laboratory. The series will make laboratory personnel aware of the intrinsic hazards associated with biomedical research and provide instruction in safe techniques that will enable workers to protect themselves from these hazards. The information will introduce new staff to good laboratory practices and provide meaningful technical review in safety for the more experienced laboratory worker.

            DIYbio is an organization that aims to help make biology a worthwhile pursuit for citizen scientists, amateur biologists, and DIY biological engineers who value openness and safety. This will require mechanisms for amateurs to increase their knowledge and skills, access to a community of experts, the development of a code of ethics, responsible oversight, and leadership on issues that are unique to doing biology outside of traditional professional settings. We also have a Flickr group! http://www.flickr.com/groups/1335236@N24/

              On the last (period) day of Marc Dusseiller Dusjagr's stay in Yogyakarta, nanoscientist, biohacker and amateur taxidermist decides to preserve his Celurut hunt and gives a taxidermy workshop in Rumah Lifepatch. The celurut, unfortunately, suffers matted, sticky fur because of the glue used for the trap. It makes deskinning and in all, taxidermy a little more difficult than usual. However, the taxidermied celurut was still made and resides in Rumah Lifepatch or with Marc currently. We also consumed the celurut, Sate-style. Other informative resources regarding DIY mouse/rat taxidermy can be found with these links: http://www.instructables.com/id/Mouse-Taxidermy/ http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/470432/Dead-mice-turned-into-ornaments-as-taxidermy-craze-sweeps-Britain http://www.taxidermy.org.uk/ http://tag.wonderhowto.com/diy-taxidermy/ Marc Dusseiller Dusjagr: http://www.dusseiller.ch/labs Lifepatch: http://lifepatch.org/ HackteriaLab 2014: http://hackteria.org/wiki/index.php/HackteriaLab_2014_-_Yogyakarta Filmed and Edited by Cindy Lin P.S. Sorry for the low quality and extremely long video, I really liked the conversations that were occurring at the same time regarding Sate Celurut, blood and Dholy's fear of dead celuruts.

                Jason Morrison ( jayunit.net) talks about the future of benchtop science: Multitouch technology, electronic lab notebooks, and the artful hacking of lab equipment with an eye toward making science fun, sexy, and aesthetically beautiful. Electronics geeks, software geeks, and science geeks unite to make tools that are a blast to use, and maybe even more productive because of (or in light of?) it.

                  I designed and laser-cut my first acrylic prototype of the ucam (http://diybio.org/ucam) 2-axis slide stage & "microscope" platform. Servos turn cams to move the stage in x and y, controlled by an arduino, controlled by processing.org on a computer, which runs a server for receiving TUIO objects over IP from the local network. In this case, via an iPhone. It should cost between $50 - $75 for all the parts, including an arduino and a *cheap* camera. The design is open source, CC-BY-NC. Beer cans not included.
