Deze workshop werd gegeven aan de deelnemers van het MycoDesign Lab. The Lamina Flow air hood allows for a sterile work environment. This makes up half of the Clean Lab space.

After discussing the different proposals on new design projects with the schizophyllum fungi it was time to get started and move into the lab. This workshop was set around the basic lab techniques, on how to make the first tests and samples and get the research started: how to work clean, how to work with liquid mycelium and how to sterilize.
