The open biohacking kit project contains information on important 
protocols in genetic engineering, stem cell research, microbiology and 
other fields of related interest. Additionally, the archive file -- 
ready for immediate distribution and diffusion -- contains numerous 
articles and designs for cheap DIY hardware such as incubators, 
centrifuges, oligonucleotide machines, microarray chip schematics, and 
so on. An integral part of the entire package is a cached copy of the 
BioBrick Foundation and synbio websites, such as OpenWetWare and the 
Parts Registry -- some may know about these groups from the 
International Genetically Engineered Machine competitions. Short 
introductory files are also being included regarding methods of 
artificial gene synthesis, using online bioinformatics databases, 
transfections, running ecoli farms, synthetic biology (synbio), ES cell 
harvesting procedures, quick "where to buy" guides, and one-page 
documents introducing newbies into the arts.

The project is in the spirit of 'open' in the sense of open source, as 
such I am welcoming any permutations and combinations of this 
information, any revision of the zip file, any contributions 
whatsoever. Please note that this is an **amateur** work made for other 
**amateurs** (and to some extent professionals) and therefore the 
contents of the zip file remain mostly as a creative work and have not 
yet matured into a final product; admittedly, any project at this stage 
is going to be immature and will only grow to the extent that people 
will help it on its journey.
