There currently is no such primer, but we are working on it. Counter
Culture Labs is where you want to be to get into this field outside of

I recommend going to CCL meetings, signing up for the CCL mailing list and
signing up for the DIYbio mailing list. Get a molecular biology texbook
(half price books in berkeley often has them cheap, but older editions via
used books on amazon is also a good resource, also if you want to spend $0
then go to http://bookfi.org but reading huge PDFs on a monitor is really
not as great as having a physical textbook). If you want something concrete
and somewhat simple, find some cool iGEM projects and set yourself the goal
of figuring out how they were put together. Read paper's published by
Knight Lab, Church Lab and Endy Lab. Depending on your bio science foo,
reading those papers could be challenging, but it will get easier as you
keep trying.
