1. None of our ideas raised safety issues inside or outside the laboratory.The ArtScienceBangalore team's work through videos, performances and outreach raises awareness around these issues.

2. The Bench work was done inside the National Center for Biological Sciences(Bangalore) premises and strictly followed the safety protocols and guidelines set by the safety review board at NCBS.

3. The National Center for Biological Sciences, Bangalore has well equipped labs where bio safety is properly taken care of. Current facilities at the labs full fill the requirements of bio safety level-1 as mentioned in Bio Safety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (4th edition, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes of Health, U.S. Government Printing Office Washington: 1999).There is an Institute level committee, which looks into the issues related to Bio Safety.

4. The ArtScienceBangalore team hopes to work with institutional researchers, the DIY community and environmental activists to implement a code of conduct and safety protocols for non-institutional synthetic biology. We have documented this work on our wiki and will present it at this year's jamboree.
