Abstract

Alongside an expanding community of non-professional biologists, DIYbio is beginning to emerge as a fledgling subdomain of HCI. However, this emerging subdomain is yet to be in the focal point of a long-term investigation to identify the challenges and opportunities of designing interactive systems and tools to facilitate biological practices outside of professional setups. As the first step towards this direction, we carried out an autoethnographic study to practice DIYbiology, by setting up a functional DIYbio space inside our HCI design studio. In this paper we reflect on our autobiographical experiences in practicing DIYbiology inside our lab space and discuss the challenges and opportunities for further HCI research in this particular subdomain.
