Friday 8 october 13.00 it’s time for the first lunch lecture on campus this year in Gorlaeus building in room 2! It will be given by the iGEM team from Delft. The International Genetically Engineered machine (iGEM) competition is an annual competition organised by Massachusetts Institue of Technology in the field of synthetic biology. The competition is carried out by students all over the world. The mission of iGEM Delft is to develop a modular, quantitative, inexpensive and rapid point-of-care test to determine vitamin deficiencies easily.
I think we’ve all had quite enough of all the corona safety measures. The VerO are organising a pubquiz so we can let go of the safety measures of the past, and instead look towards the Future! The quiz will be held in the Foobar on the 12th of October. You’re welcome from 19:30 and the quiz will start at 20:00. If you’d like to join, please sign in with a team, or on your own (in which case you’ll be put in a team) using the Google Forms. We hope to see you then!
On Friday 28 october 13.00 the second lunch lecture of this year will be in room 2 of the Gorlaeus building in Leiden. Last time it was the iGEM team from Delft, but this time it will be the team from Leiden! A big challenge in synthetic biology is the restriction of the spread of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) outside of the laboratory. To solve this problem, iGEM Leiden designed an open-source, standardised, modular and widely applicable Safe-by-Design biocontainment system for these GMOs. With their Double Plasmid Lock (DOPL LOCK) they strive to stimulate innovations in the field of biosafety and to accelerate the field of synthetic biology. Lunch is for free so sign up at svlife.nl!
