Saving the world with bacteria

Bacteria are all around us, and there is an increasing understanding that not all bacteria are bad. However, many don’t know that bacteria may be a solution to global problems like world hunger. With a little bit of engineering, common organisms like bacteria and yeast can be “re-designed” to produce medicine or protect food crops. Two teams, Aboa and Aalto-Helsinki, will be representing Finland in the international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. Come support the teams, and find out how young Finnish researchers are planning to save the world.
