🥇Tartu TUIT (Estonia iGEM) got the GOLD medal at the biggest 🌎worldwide synthetic biology competition – iGEM!
👩🏻🔬The iGEM competition is an international competition where university/high school teams provide potential solutions to world problems using synthetic biology. It was first organized in 2003 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and since then has become the largest synthetic biology competition.
Science and Technology students worked very hard whole summer, spring and autumn to make it possible. 💡From developing the idea, planning and making experiments🔬, human practices, public engagement👩🏫, to searching for sponsors and making team’s own website. While performing the project, students got invaluable experience, acquired practical, social and teamwork skills and accelerated their transition from students to young researchers.
🎉THANK You everyone who contributed and made it possible, in particular Mart Loog, LoogLab members, UT Institute of Technology and S&T students! 🤪Want to become S&T student? Join us @st.unitartu ✨
