Work in progress. French version
Need to be reviewed. I'd some help /contrib
In a few desires of a sort (the hand of spell) of crazy auto ethnography I had decided to throw on walls a little description of my practices in garage biology. The #BioMonstration quickly came to give a signature as a marker to this loose thread, a blinker beacon in the formulation of my thoughts.
A sticked graffiti out that emerges without coherence of frequency when at the same time a desire to share crossbreeds a belief, or a hope, that I can describe simply a small piece of something bigger.
Rather than forcing a restructuring of this proto canvas, I wish to retranscribe it here such as it pours from my imagination on walls of the Internet. In the order in which appeared these emanations of a pseudo disorder, of an obscurity or a fog perceived by the uninitiated person.

It’s when you correct a sequence in your code of a living thing.
Not to be confused with slaughtering
- Laboratory maker
Demonym of person who does & lives in the laboratory
A bit like a Hi-Fi tech ( High fidelity) system frame to see non-chromosomal DNA, often provided by bacteria or in baker’s yeast…
Bacteria and yeast that humans spread all over their plasma screens
Ethnonym for a group of people living outside the disciplinary cell of biology, sometimes willing to enter it.
Ethnonym of a group of people who broke into the disciplinary cell of biology and who craft to smash chains, walls, and bars.
Formulation with digit encryption like of the CAFFEINE by the disciplinary cell of chemistry. This one probably thinking that encipher quality would offer enough safety to keep the said substance safe at home.

I say to myself that I can continue this thread with a #BioMonstration with the intention of micro-narration a little differently from practices in the study and manipulation of the living.
Sort of (auto)ethnography peppered with fabulation
Before the continuations, hop the ears in Bio Is The New Black: Design embarked in a laboratory of biology
it is mentioned in the episode that the Design could have as first historical emergence the year 1750
the word and concept biology was forged in 1766 by Michael Christoph Hanow; then in 1797 by the doctors Roose, Burdach and Treviranus (1800 -1802) then by Lamarck (1800 - 1802) naturalist, botanist, zoologist.
As a scientific discipline.
“The positivist in biology avoids metaphysical concepts by making a reduction in his questions. Thus, when François Jacob declares that “life” is no longer studied in laboratories, one can understand that the concept of “life” is similar to the old abstractions of metaphysics. What happens in the laboratories? We study redox relationships, methylations, different reactions between molecules: but do we ever see “life”? Instead of “life”, positive biology studies the properties of one of the levels of organization characteristic of living organisms (individuals, products, cells, molecules).
One could call up other examples: does biology study “the animal” or only action-reaction sequences, or does it study the action-reaction sequences, reflexes, stereotyped behaviors? Does it study “the human” or only its physiology, its social behaviors?”

- WetLab (or Lavaboratory):
Place for experiments and manipulation in the bathroom of people from the DIY / garage / hacking biology communities
“we extracted and sequenced a DNA in the wetlab”
Thanks to Kaerhon for clarifying this important point
