As an activist and founder of the Bay Area’s annual Open Science Summit, Joseph Jackson posed an intriguing question on Xconomy a few years ago: “Can a generation of “DIY” biology hobbyists help kickstart a new biotech revolution the way the home brew computer club did for personal computing?” Jackson answered his own question a year later as a co-founder of BioCurious, a “hackerspace” in Sunnyvale, CA, intended as a community biotechnology lab for inventors, entrepreneurs, and others who believe that innovation should be accessible, affordable, and open to everyone. Now Jackson has partnered with Kevin Lustig, CEO of San Diego’s Assay Depot, to establish “Bio, Tech, & Beyond,” a community biotech lab in Carlsbad, CA, about 34 miles north of downtown San Diego. It’s holding an open house Friday.
