Roland Eils, Victor Sourjik, Hauke Busch, and Jens Keienburg initiate first iGEM Team for Heidelberg

iGEM is the leading international competition on "Genetically Engineered Machines" in the up-coming field of synthetic biology. A team of undergraduate students is developing a biological device that is able to detect and to kill pathogens or tumor cells.

The results will be presented in November at the competitive jamboree at MIT in Boston. All students will receive an "all-inclusive" stipend for participation in the jamboree. For more information please visit the Heidelberg IGEM pages or read the journal publication ³bacteria killers out of the gene constructor box.
