Brooklyn-based Genspace, the first community biolab, celebrated one year of operations on January 19, 2012 with an open house that attracted about 50 people. I went to the event with Popular Science executive editor Cliff Ransom, who was delighted to learn that Daniel Grushkin, a former colleague, was a co-founder. The Genspace lab is compact and filled with donated or eBay-purchased, professional quality devices – overall an impressive and highly functional facility. Memberships and course information can be found on the lab’s website. Some photos of the event can be found here.
