From Mackenzie Cowell, email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Identify the DIYbio model organism.
- It needs to be safe, forgiving, interesting, and available
- Candidates include yeast (humanity has a long history of engineering it, and it's commonly available), moss (p. patens?), E. coli (good because it's well understood, bad because it could be pathogenic)
TODO: Add lists of possible organisms, studies of said organisms, and desirable properties of DIYbio model organism(s).
