  Biohacker - Definition, explanation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
Biohacker is a term used to describe an individual who experiments with DNA and other aspects of genetics, usually outside of an academic, governmental or corporate laboratory.
Biohackers are similar to computer hackers who are hobbyists and like to tinker with DNA and other aspects of genetics.
The exponential advances in biological technology typified by the approximate doubling of DNA sequencing and synthesis efficiencies on an annual basis without cost increases (similar to Moore's law for computer systems) is likely to create a subculture of biohackers who will increasingly tinker with available genes and even create completely new genes with novel functions.

 Superiors
From as early as the mid 21st century c.e., augmented human genotypes have exerted a strong guiding influence on terragen society and culture, whether mediating between nearbaselines and transapients, or striking out in their own directions.
The first Superiors grew out of the biohacker, biopunk, and ribophunk subcultures of the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AT.
By the late 2nd century the self-tweaked and the superbabies had become corporatised, and new experiments in genomic optimisation were taking place in the Earthside Freezones, the Orbitals, on the Moon, Mars, and the Belt.

 Intentional Biology: Open-Source Biology
Into this fractured milieu will soon arrive a third group, the garage biology hacker, who is plugged into neither community, and who doesnÕt give a rip about either.
The biohacker community will emerge as DNA manipulation technology decreases in cost and when the overall technological infrastructure enables instruments to be assembled in the garage.
The Molecular Sciences Institute has a parallel DNA synthesizer that can synthesize sufficient DNA to build a human pathogenic virus from scratch in about a week.

"Even if we don't have bioterrorists and teen-age biohackers, we will still create things that do not have the properties that we thought they would," Church said.
The problem is that the body has not evolved a general ability to fend off artificial biological agents.

 A kinder, gentler Skeletor
I think that the level of dorkiness all depends on how the supposedly dorky activity is presented.
For example, to make his new love of bioinformatics programming seem hip and "edgy", Jacob should refer to himself as a "biohacker".
Instead of writing programs to "pattern match large subsets of sequences upstream of genes that are co-expressed in an attempt to find new regulatory elements", Jacob should simply refer to his activities as "writing l33t programz and scriptz to 0wn genez!!!!!!!".
