Our Mission

SoundBio is a community of amateur and professional science enthusiasts dedicated to promoting science education, providing access to biotechnology, and fostering self-learning in order to promote science understanding and inspire the next generation of scientists.

OUR GOALs

We strive to create a welcoming, accessible, and affordable community space for any individual who may be curious about science. We believe that opportunities to learn about the world around us should be free from limitations of any kind and we encourage everyone to come on by; say hello, ask questions, and get involved! Each person and their ideas at SoundBio is treated equally and with respect to encourage inclusiveness and enthusiasm for science.

our offerings

We organize projects, workshops, and science events embracing hands-on learning as our motto. These activities span from microscopic techniques (basic use, semi-permanent mounts, basic stains) to molecular techniques (DNA isolation, PCR, restriction enzyme digests, Western Blot, bacterial growth), and dissections. Additionally, we apply bioinformatics analyses to publicly available genotyping data to advance our understanding of population structure (learn more here). Take a look at our Projects page and our Past Events page to see what we've been up to! Who knows, it may just spark a new idea that you'd like to pursue!
