During the international competition iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine), GenoScreen supports the IGEM IONIS student team for its "Cinergy" project.
This eco-responsible project aims to recycle cigarette butts: its objective is to recycle the cigarette butt filter by degrading it with bacteria in order to produce electricity.
To contribute to this objective, GenoScreen offers sequencing services to the IGEM IONIS team. We will follow the progress of their project and wish them good luck.
The iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) is an international student competition organized by MIT in Boston. The purpose of this competition is to bring together students from all over the world to advance research in the field of synthetic biology.
