Enter The Bionet
These images were used to make an explanatory video about how the bionet works for a global gathering of Synthetic Biologists. The technical basis of the bionet is the ability to barcode, archive, and track artifacts as they move through the world, along with an international agreement that updates standards and protocols for material exchange between researchers. While providing an intuitive way for scientists to store and share their material inventories, the bionet offers novel ways of organizing actions and information around biological subjects.
Most laboratories that work on genetic research put their materials in small plastic vials that are stored for long times in big freezers.
The information can let you know the content’s genetics, where it first came from, and who has manipulated it along its path.
