Student team from TU Delft wins international Synthetic Biology competition
Students from TU Delft have won the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston. Earlier this week, the team presented their idea for a quick, on-site method to demonstrate antibiotic resistance in bacteria in dairy cattle. The test would allow a farmer to adjust the treatment if resistant bacteria is detected, and reduce the unnecessary usage of antibiotics.
GrapheneX starts experiments with graphene as a material for light sails
This week, GrapheneX, a team of four young researchers from TU Delft, is doing a series of experiments in a weightless environment. The aim is to test graphene as a material for a so-called light sail, which may be used to propel spacecrafts in the future. The researchers hope to show that the ultra-thin material is suitable for this purpose.
