About

A toolkit that empowers amateurs to search for the next antibiotic

Post/Biotics is a toolkit that empowers citizen scientists to reduce sole reliance on pharmaceutical companies to develop new antibiotics. Post/Biotics distributes empirical research to students and a pop-up lab allows them to participate in discovering substances with antimicrobial values by testing locally available plants and soils. It’s a vision for open source drug discovery and showcases how availability of scientific tools can change how society learns, creates and adds to scientific knowledge.
