the DIYbio community of Heidelberg

Welcome to the DIYbio community of Heidelberg!

Biotop Community Lab wants to promote democratization of science through access to biotechnology and learn-by-doing education.

Come help us to establish a community biology lab where interested people can explore, learn, tinker and prototype with biology.
Have fun with us hacking biology equipment, learning about PCR and experimenting with fermentation.

You do not require any previous knowledge in biology to join: amateurs, curious people, makers, inventors, designers, entrepreneurs and scientists alike are all welcome at Biotop.

The best way to get in touch with us is to join one of our meetings and subscribe to our newsletter.

If you are interested in biology, DIYbio and biohacking you should not miss Biotop Community Lab!
