Bryan Bishop has herioically created a DIYbio FAQ (three cheers!). In the interest of neutrality, I copied his latest version to OpenWetWare/wiki/DIYbio/FAQ today and I encourage everyone to edit that version mercilessly. Otherwise Bryan will become the official keeper of the holy DIYbio FAQ flame and the canonical version will reside at heybryan.org – this may be a fine solution for now.
The FAQ contains information on Getting Started with DIYbio, local DIYbio groups, Synthetic Biology, iGEM, videos, Keiki gels, and MiniFAQs on DNA synthesis and microfluidics. Obvious content to expand are the sections on social and legal issues, basic wetlab equipment, lab services available to amateur biologists, and current projects in the community.
I’ve made some improvements to the FAQ recently. Check it out. http://openwetware.org/wiki/DIYbio/FAQ
