Now You Can Build Your Own Open-Source Optogenetics Hardware

Recently, researchers at Rice University released designs for an open-source optogenetics hardware platform.

In a paper available through the open-access journal Scientific Reports, bioengineering graduate student Karl Gerhardt and his lab colleagues detail how to build and calibrate their Light Plate Apparatus (LPA), which they say can be done in a day. Better yet, the component costs will only run you $150 if you have a 3-D printer handy (or $400 if you don’t).
