Human Practices

Human Practices

The basic idea of Human Practices is to concern oneself with the questions of how our work affects the world and how our project is affected by the world.

In view of this idea we want to give the public an understanding of synthetic biology in general, as well as for our project of this year. Only from the view of external people we can evaluate whether the public accepts or rejects our project in the current state and draw conclusions of how we can optimize it in the future. Under this aspect we are creating “Clonecademy”, a website, supposed to give a better understanding of cloning to people without well-founded knowledge. For further information about refer to the chapter Clonecademy. In addition to the above we want to visit school classes and consult experts. Future development of our project aims to lessen people´s fears of biogenetics.
