How to get in jail as a biohacker

A new week, a new episode of #OPENBIOTECH! In this one I’m showing you how to get in jail as a biohacker. Yep, that’s right. I give you a demo of an exciting glow-in-the-dark beer experiment which you can only do with a permit (I did the experiment at the University of Delft). Also, I spoke to biohackers from Germany and asked about their experiences with European regulations.
