David Ishee is creating mad science

$116
per month
I am a dog breeder and biohacker from Mississippi whose goal is to make genetic engineering accessible to everyone.  I learned genetic engineering to cure genetic diseases in dogs and be a better dog breeder.  I'm also working to share the knowledge and skills I've acquired to teach people how to use these technologies on a budget, in a small space, and without a degree.

Patrons will have access to protocols, exclusive Q&A sessions, mentoring, engineered DNA, tutorials, advice for navigating the FDAs process and other goodies.

I still work a full time job, and funding for everything I do comes out of our household budget. Patreon will allow me to expand my lab and take on bigger and more exciting projects.  Who knows?  Maybe I'll be able to quit my job and do mad science full time.  That would certainly accelerate things, and make my wife happy!  At the very least, I'll be able to get enzymes. 

It will not be fancy.  There will be no graphics.  There will be ponytails.
Tiers
Viroid
$2 or more per month 6 patrons
Viroids will be helping to schmear the science around, helping dogs and will get access to the Patron-only feed. 

There will be protocols, where to find stuff, how to build lab equipment, mistakes I've made, how to engineer a mammal on a budget, and terrible video before it goes out to the world.

 What are you even doing with that much money laying around? You will get access to everything and first crack at getting things like glowing puppies and healthy gm dogs. I'll design your super soldier minions, we'll cheat on your biology homework, whatever.
Goals
$116 of $500 per month
If I get this much per month I'll build a new bigger lab and upgrade the kennels too.
