Open tools accelerate progress


Our Mission

LabDAO is a global online community of scientists and engineers that come together to develop and share open tools for life science research.

The community's mission is to accelerate progress in the life sciences by making both computational and wet-lab tools accessible to all its members globally.

Members within LabDAO implement algorithms and laboratory processes to offer them to community members on a peer-to-peer exchange, openlab.

The community is also focused on sharing access to resource intensive bio-computation.

We are coming together to build a community-owned and operated exchange of wet-lab and dry-lab laboratory services.

We want to live in a world in which the ability to unleash one's potential to develop technology is not bounded by limited access to funding, hardware and distribution channels.

The tools we are building together are designed to lower the barriers for inventors to raise funding, to develop technologies and to share them in a permissionless way.

Our Values

  • We encourage focused and deep collaboration among our community members

  • We are committed to working in the open and asynchronously where possible. This means we prefer text over audio and github over discord.

  • We respect each other's time and are present with the group when attending a meeting.
