Introduction to Biosurveillance
How much can you learn about a stranger from a stray cigarette butt?
What does (and doesn’t) your DNA reveal? How are emerging genetic technologies reinforcing age old stereotypes and what can we do to subvert them?
In this workshop we will take a tour of DIY biotech including DNA extraction, phenotyping, and concoction of our own genetic obfuscation spray. We will explore the present and future of biological surveillance and discuss what you can do to resist it.
