Synthetic biology creates solutions using biology from an engineering point of view. iGEM goes beyond the lab, incorporating the social and environmental contexts.
Team Stockholm 2020 is working on Environmental pollution and especially in aquatic environments. We are all aware that environmental pollution is an issue that needs to be solved soon and we will try to contribute to it by applying Synthetic Biology. Aquatic pollution is known to be a big problem in Sweden since a lot of toxic chemicals which are found in the water may also enter the food chain. Our main idea is to combine genetic parts of different organisms in order to detect easily and fast specific chemicals by electricity production.
