REMIX: Synthetic biology versus hip hop

Organised by:

SCI's London Group in partnership with UCL's Chemical Physical Society

University College London, London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

The birth of hip hop and genetic engineering happened within two months of each other in 1973, and both have enjoyed and suffered remarkably similar trajectories ever since: imagination, invention, controversy, remix, legal trolling, big business, and underground rebirth. This is the story of two of the most creative and lucrative endeavors in science and music.
