I am a hacker studying biochemistry and information theory at Colorado State University. I plan on integrating a systemic understanding of biology and computer science to augment my own human potential beyond imagination.

I've been experiencing some difficulties getting GFP genes to spread through mammalian cell cultures using this method so far, but I am going to try a variety of vectors once I get access to a sequencer. I want to see exactly what each viral vector is doing in detail, and since I can't easily tell why my experiments are…
@chironex The breakthrough is doing a large number of small doses by scheduling activation of the viruses to be very selective, as well as limit the production. I have been able to control the cycles very well so far in bacterial colonies alone. By doing this scheduling, I can avoid cytotoxic dosage completely. The problem…
Even with the difficulties involved, I think that power sources are the #1 obstacle to many biohacking projects. I think metabolic power generation would be ideal, especially combined with maybe ambient power generation through fractal antennas. Not having an organ system to move this power where it needs is unfortunate,…
@RealityWizard As soon as I get things confirmed, I am planning on making a huge announcement. In a nutshell though, I've designed a genetic circuit that allows cells infected by a lysogenic virus to sustain production of more viruses at a very controlled rate, allowing even single cell to be the foundation of a potential…
I transformed E. Coli with plasmids coding for virion proteins and put a LacZ promoter on them so I could selectively only produce viruses when I added IPTG, which acts like a non-digestible analog to lactose, so you can use it to turn bacterial genes on fairly easily. I am finding purification of the viruses to be little…
I'm actually obsessed with this specific development. I work a lot with big data and actually analyzing the input would allow for the augmentation of artificial senses to much higher calibers. Sharks, for example, have an electrical sense that is based on thousands if not millions of individual cells painting a picture of…
@TylerEyth Do you have any good sources for doing human myostatin gene knockout? I am very interested in this as well.
My specific areas of study are all centered around the bio aspect of biohacking. The idea of modifying aspects of tissues and higher order cell-to-cell interactions as well as on the cellular level are of particular interest to me. Right now I am actually exploring the idea of implementing an electrical sense into human…
Thanks for the well-organized input! I'll definitely check out neuronnexus.com. I actually already have a design in the works for a sub-dermal sensor array I was going to train with either neural networks or a more advanced synaptic chip, but I am definitely trying to think bigger. Such an interface should give me…
