BIOME, Stanford’s Biological Interdisciplinary Open Maker Environment, is a student group dedicated to providing any Stanford student the skills, resources, and support to engage in a bio-hacking project. Bio-hacking includes any project that utilizes biological materials. We seek to educate our membership and the broader public and strive to broaden the scope of biotechnology beyond the conventional definition.

BIOME was founded in 2015 by Jordan Shapiro and Tina Ju and is supported by the Associated Students of Stanford University. We meet every other Monday from 8:00-9:00 PM. See our calendar below for more details and all of our other events and workshops. If you are interested in joining the mailing list or you have any questions, email or
