A team of students from TU Delft has won several prizes at the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston.
Their Biolinker project took the overall prize making them the best team in the world, and also won best hardware project, best wiki (website) and best applied design.
The Biolinker is a 3D printer made from K’NEX construction toy parts which the team of nine students uses to create biofilms – thin layers of bacteria or micro-organisms.
Over 200 teams from around the world took part in the iGEM competition, held between September 24 and 28. It is the largest student competition in the field of synthetic biology.
