A gene gun is by far one of the most useful tools for getting DNA into an organism. But they are prohibitively expensive to buy ($35,000 new from biorad). Since we needed one for our projects we thought we’d try and build one! We managed to put ours together for less than $100 and it works great! Thanks so much to those who came to makercon this past weekend and saw us demonstrating it. To find out how to build your own gene gun, check out our new video!
