We work at PUC (Chile) and OpenPlant – University of Cambridge (UK). We promote open technologies for bioengineering, science and education. We are part of the GOSH and TECNOx open technology movements.
i) Bioengineering tools (e.g robust characterization of genetic parts)
ii) Open source technology for research and education (and fun) (e.g. Open Educational Resources , LOOP DNA fab tool)
iii) Multicellular organization (e.g. Fractals, Tractable deformation)
iv) Workshops, practicals and technological residencies (e.g. Bakubung report, open tech workshops, UK-Africa GCRF, Labfd-UST Mendoza; Comunicaciones Especulativas and TReND in Africa)
v) Design and architecture (e.g. Synthetic Aesthetics, RedFungi)
Current collaborative projects (you are welcome!):
LightM with Alex Kutschera – U. of Munich at https://github.com/vektorious/lightM
OpenVectors for uLOOP DNA assembly with Bernardo Pollak and C. Dupont (JCVI) at https://osf.io/kw4fh/
RedFungi at https://redfungiblog.wordpress.com & Biofabrication lab
Comunicaciones Especulativas at http://interspecifics.cc/comunicacionesespeculativas/
Microscopes for yeast counting for beer brewers with Nano Castro (gitlab link soon) and wool fiber inspection (link soon)
Open hardware devices for isothermal reactions with Axel Sepulveda (repo link soon)
We work with Jim Haseloff, Gudy Kausel, Keymer Lab, Backyard Brains, Neil Dalchau, Rodrigo Gutierrez, Endy Lab, Phil Ross, Biodesign FADEU, Facundo Martin & Nano Castro, Rudge lab, Ale Nadra Peter von Dassow, FONDAP-CRG & Nacho Sanchez
I was born in Mendoza, Argentina, and I am a Boca Juniors fan. I studied two years of Engineering and three of Biology. I worked one year at the Alvarez-Buylla lab (UNAM) before moving to Cambridge to do a PhD in Biological Sciences at Jim Haseloff ´s lab. All my education has been kindly supported by the free educational system of Argentina and international scholarships from JP II Foundation; Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Becas LIDER.
