Abstract

In order to explain how DIYbio knowledge and expertise is developed and shared the use of Practice Theory will help us gain a useful understanding of how working practices are sustained, reproduced and potentially changed. In addition, the development and sharing of thick, evocative, rich descriptions of these practices might contribute to the motivational knowledge of DIYbio practitioners.
