Learn how the first ever Pakistani iGEM team developed a portable, inexpensive vehicle emissions test to address air pollution. Their colorimetric biosensor won them a bronze medal at the 2016 iGEM International Jamboree.
The human body is made up of trillions of cells, microscopic computers that carry out complex behaviors according to the signals they receive from each other and their environment. Synthetic biologists engineer living cells to control how they behave by converting their genes into programmable circuits. A new study published by Assistant Professor Wilson Wong (BME) in Nature Biotechnology outlines a new simplified platform to target and program mammalian cells as genetic circuits, even complex ones, more quickly and efficiently.
Visit the lab at bioscience company Amyris, and the smell of yeast could kick-start a craving for beer, pizza, or both. But upon further investigation, the robot busily plating yeast colonies clearly won’t yield any delicious rewards for a Pavlovian response.
New research works out how to translate between the language of biology – molecules – and the language of microelectronics – electrons. It could open the door to new kinds of biosensors and therapeutics.
A major challenge in truly targeted cancer therapy is cancer’s suppression of the immune system. Northwestern University synthetic biologists now have developed a general method for “rewiring” immune cells to flip this action around.
One of the events that mark the synthetic biology calendar every year is the iGEM Giant Jamboree. iGEM stands for International Genetically Engineered Machine competition. Since 2004, this event calls for the participation of students in the field of synthetic biology. The aim of the competition is to educate, share and present ambitious scientific projects through teamwork and collaboration.
Industrial fertilizers help feed billions of people every year, but they remain beyond the reach of many of the world’s poorest farmers. Now, researchers have engineered microbes that, when added to soil, make fertilizer on demand, producing plants that grow 1.5 times larger than crops not exposed to the bugs or other synthetic fertilizers. The advance, reported here this week at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, could help farmers in the poorest parts of the world increase their crop yields and combat chronic malnutrition.
In areas known as the ocean’s shadow zones, where oxygen is as its lowest saturation in seawater, certain bacteria have the metabolic ability to form nitrogen gas by combining ammonia and nitrite. These bacteria, known as anaerobic ammonia oxidation (anammox) bacteria, play a critical role in the biosphere’s hugely important nitrogen cycle and the substantial nitrogen losses observed in marine environments.
Randy Rettberg, Co-founder and President of iGEM, discusses the 2016 iGEM competition. Watch the interview to learn about his vision for the future for the students that participate in iGEM, as well as the future of synthetic biology.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have engineered cells with a ‘built-in genetic circuit’ that produces a molecule that inhibits the ability of tumors to survive and grow in their low oxygen environment.
