You share 99.9% of your genetic code with every other human on earth

BY IONA INGLESBY
@ VOL 14 ON MAY 24, 2017

Did you know that you share 99.9% of your genetic code with every other human on earth. This leaves just 0.1% of your genes which make you.. you.

DIY Your DNA - Genetics For Everyone

BY PHILIPP BOEING
@ VOL 149 ON JUL 26, 2017

"Lots of people can hack, make and create their own technologies and move from being just a consumer to being a participator or even a creator." 

In "DIY your DNA - Genetics for Everyone" From PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 149, Philipp Boeing wants to do for genetics what Arduino has done for electronics, making it open to everybody. As co-founder of Bento Lab, he’s helped create the world’s first easy-to-use DNA laboratory.

Collage City

"An architect, it seems, has to be an optimist and idealist. That by building we're somehow making the world a better place. But before you need buildings, you need people." In Collage City from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 17, artist, designer, realtor and retired paramedic, Jean-Michel Reed, shares stories and perceptions of Buffalo, New York as an intimate outsider. Reed moved to Buffalo in 1992, working first as a paramedic, and later transitioning to both a designer and a realtor as the city attempted an about face. Cites are made first of people, and then within those individual people, of experiences. It is this combination of convergent and divergent experiences that construct the sociological makeup of place and city, which, in turn manufactures the physical landscape.
