BioStrike are an international collective of artists and scientists working on citizen science with a hacker ethos. I visited them yesterday at the Biofilia art and science lab at Aalta University where they are currently giving art students a crash course in manipulating genes to create bioluminescent plants, as well as undertaking their own open science research on antibiotics. They aim to teach microbiology that can be done in your own backyard and kitchen. See the Peer to Peer Foundation and Hackteria.
