Students design a smart bandage

24 September 2014

This year in early November, another team of University students will be participating in the international iGEM competition, where students attempt to build the best biological ‘machine’ using synthetic biology. Cells are modified so they can serve other useful purposes. Two years ago, the University of Groningen team became world champions.
