A Biopunk Manifesto - Meredith Patterson.

A biohacker is a biopunk hobbyist who experiments with DNA and other 
aspects of genetics.[3][4][6] A biohacker (or "wetware hacker") is 
similar to a computer hacker who creates and modifies software or 
computer hardware as a hobby, but should not be confused with a 
bioterrorist, whose sole intent is the deliberate release of viruses, 
bacteria, or other germs used to cause illness or death in people, 
animals, or plants (in the same way a computer hacker should not be 
confused with the more popular, yet erroneous, use of the term, 
describing someone who spreads computer viruses or breaks into computers 
systems for malicious purposes).
