A group of researchers has created the first community-run biology laboratory in New York City.
The lab is an effort to provide a home for amateur scientists, as well as professionals looking for a space away from academia and business.
The co-founder of Genspace says it is “crucial that this lab exists” in order to foster creativity in the sciences.
A group of scientists not content with the status quo, angry how academia doesn’t recognise their genius, breaking away to form their own society where they can do what ever experiment takes their fancy? Yeah… the end is nigh.
