A team of eleven students have designed a new bacteria: the freshness sensor. Put the bacteria on a piece of meat and it tells you straight away whether it's fresh or not. The bacteria is competing for prizes awarded at an annual international competition for students involved in synthetic biology: iGEM 2012. The team recently became champion in the European iGEM competition. The Groningen team include both Bachelor’s and Master’s students doing a range of degree programmes: medical biology, molecular biology, chemistry, biomedical technology and electrical engineering.
