The ongoing pandemic lead to a huge outburst of solidarity in academia and citizen science. Hear about the journey of some of them :)

Rapid and exhaustive testing on SARS-CoV-2 is one of the key pillars of pandemic-control management. The Biotech-Industry didn‘t miss their chance in pivoting this huge „market“ and sell their testing reagents to horrendous prices. Even in Nigeria one test still costs 60$.

We, the DIY-bio community & academical developmental aid organizations, are finally catching up: developing, validating and distributing open source test-protocols and the critical resources and knowledge to produce key elements (enzymes) by your own.

This approach to distribute DNA-rings (plasmids), necessary for producing enzymes in bacteria, can help cut cost tenfold or more, rendering low-resource regions more independent from the patent- & price-war on Biotech and heavily limiting supply chain dependencies.

Kicking off in fine style, Gora teamed up with Boogizm co-founder Fym as »Gora & Eloy«. Their project is a unique definition of broken bass house, a unique blend of hi-tec bassdriven sound, broken beats, weird bleeps and warm analogue space. Their productions are full of quirky flavors whilst maintaining a banging dancefloor appeal.
