About This Simulation
The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a worldwide synthetic biology competition that was initially aimed at undergraduate university students, but has since expanded to include divisions for high school students, entrepreneurs, and community laboratories, as well as ‘overgraduates’.
In the Genetically Engineered Machine lab, you will join an iGEM team to design a biosensor that can sense biofilm forming bacteria. You will combine two BioBrick parts and transform bacteria with the gene construct. Will you be able to create a novel synthetic organism that can be used as a biosensor?
