A group of students from the Stockholm area has come together to enter 2017 iGEM, the international competition of synthetic biology. Our group is happy to be part of the adventure and lending a hand with our mucus expertise and the theme of the project: developing mucus degrading bacteria for the engineering of diseased lung microbiota.

Check out their project video that sums it up!

Beyond the science and technology, the iGEM competition is also about communication. Have a look at this interview and tutorial on how to make your own slime!

We will come back to them after the project is over with updates on their achievements! Good luck to them!
