ReaGent. A new DIYbio lab in Ghent. The first one in Flanders. What is DIYbio? It's a movement of scientist, artists and civilians who want to make biosciences more accessible for a broad audience.
To sparkle the debate around this new phenomenon and its implications, Reagent organises a viewing of the documentary DIYsect. DIYsect looks at DIYbio and bioart around the world. After the episodes, we exchange thoughts.
We're watching episode 4 and after that a short video explanation on DIYbio. It is not required to have watched the previews episodes.
This episode, "Genocracy", focuses on the recent advancements of genetic technologies as well as the socio-political and cultural implications that follow.
There will be drinks & snacks, likeminded people and the chance to connect with eachother and see the lab.
