A public biotech lab has opened its doors in New York City, reports Wired. Genspace is the brainchild of journalist Dan Gruskhkin, biomedical researcher Ellen Jorgensen, Russell Durrett, and Sung Won Lim. The lab is in compliance with biosafety level 1 regulations and anyone can use it with a $100 a month membership. Wired notes that the lab is made of found and donated parts and equipment, and it has restaurant-table lab benches as well as centrifuges, incubators, and microscopes. "Now we have a secure lab space where we can do quality, professional-level science," Jorgensen tells Wired.
