A look at the biohacking spaces in Latin America and the open-science initiatives that are expanding in the region.
Manuel Giménez is a synthetic biologist and computer scientist from Universidad de Buenos Aires. He was member and instructor of the first two Argentinean iGEM teams, founder of the first biohacking community in Buenos Aires (BiohackingBA), and is currently a graduate student at Boston University. He has recently been spreading the word about synthetic biology in his home country and the region. His dream is to see a mature and strong bioeconomy based on innovation developed throughout the whole Latin American region.
