Part of University of Birmingham Arts and Science Festival

Bacteria and microbes are all around us, on us and within us: they are often the source for new technologies and medicines. Using ingredients sourced from local shops and prepared with items regularly found in the kitchen, Dr Mel Grant, Lecturer in Biological Sciences in the School of Dentistry and BOM fellow, will use DIY Bio methods to grow environmental bacteria, letting the microbes illustrate the sights of Birmingham. The week long workshop will be held in the gallery space at Birmingham Open Media, a new space for art, technology and science.

Presented by Birmingham Open Media in partnership with University of Birmingham
