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.
Life from the lab
Scientists at TU Delft want to make a synthetic cell from separate biological building blocks.
Crafting matter atom by atom
Over the past twenty years, the scale of data storage decreased at an astonishing rate. With society currently creating more than a billion gigabytes of data every day, further decrease of data storage area is becoming increasingly relevant. Together with his team, however, Prof. Sander Otte from Delft University of Technology found the ultimate solution.
Tinkering under the bonnet of life
CRISPR-Cas9, the technique scientists use to very precisely edit DNA, is receiving global attention. And rightly so, because this technology has far-reaching consequences. A longer life in good health? The end of genetic disorders? Crops that are able to survive in the harshest conditions? CRISPR-Cas9 brings all of this and more within our grasp. The research group of Dr Stan Brouns at the department of Bionanoscience is conducting fundamental research into how CRISPR systems function. What is his take on the forthcoming revolution?
