iGEM Team Hamburg wins gold at synthetic biology competition
A team of local students supported by altona Diagnostics developed a Sustainable Human-Imitating Elimination & Lure Device (S.H.I.E.L.D.), specifically targeting malaria mosquitoes.
Starting in November 2017 the interdisciplinary group of students from the University Hamburg and Hamburg University of Technology met to think about and discuss different ideas for a project. The goal was to participate in the international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition, a world-wide scientific matchup of student teams and their respective projects in the field of synthetic biology. With interdisciplinary effort, iGEM Team Hamburg developed the first sustainable malaria prevention method and won a gold medal at the competition.
