Trieste iGEM team fly to Boston finals

The 2012 Trieste iGEM team move to the final phase of the competition run by MIT

Seven students from the University of Trieste who have taken part in the iGEM - international Genetically Engineered Machine competition, proceed to the finals to take place in Boston, USA in November.

Specifically designed for undergraduates, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT in Boston organizes the annual iGEM competition to form young students approaching the world of research, and bring them into direct contact with cutting-edge topics in synthetic biology, combining biological, scientific knowledge and engineering skills to give concrete solutions to environmental, health, medical, bioprocessing and industrial issues.

The Trieste team project, The Jolly JoCare, focuses on the engineering, and testing of, a probiotic (an organism that contributes in a beneficial way to the microbial balance of the intestine) to be used to bring different types of molecules for therapeutic purposes into the human intestine.

The team from the University of Trieste, Department of Life Sciences, and ICGEB participate - for the second consecutive year - in the US finals.
