Luminous pictures from yeast cells

Ten TU/e students will be participating in the iGEM competition. As a group they’ve manipulated yeast cells to form a luminous image, a find with which they hope to outdo the international competition at the synthetic biology contest organized by MIT University. Competitors for the Genetically Engineered Machine Competition have to create a biological system and assimilate that into live cells. Preliminaries for European and African hopefuls will be held in Amsterdam on October 5, 6 and 7. Winners will be participating in the global competition in Boston on November 2, 3 and 4.

The Eindhoven students, along with three other Dutch groups, will be presenting themselves at the Eindhoven Discovery Festival held September 28.Find out more about the Eindhoven submission here.
