I am interested, but totally new to biology? Where do I start?

You’ve come to the right place! Genspace exists for both beginners and advanced biologists alike.

If you are new to the field of biology & biotech, but want to gain some familiarity with our wet lab, we recommend that you take one of our introductory classes like the Biotech Crash Course. However, many of our classes are open to absolute beginners unless otherwise noted in the class description.  

You can find our current class listings here.


I have a project idea. How can I join the lab?

If you have an independent project you would like to pursue, just fill out an application to our Open Lab Access here and we will review your proposal and get back to you as soon as we can. Please be patient as we are a small crew and sometimes it takes time to do a full assessment.


What DOES lab membership get me?

What DOESN’T lab membership get me?

Lab membership does not include any materials or reagents not already listed here. Generally, this means anything not standard in a lab, such as specific enzymes, DNA sequences, and other materials that are specific to your project. While we will happily order specific supplies, individuals are financially responsible.
