NUS iGEM 2019


While engineered bacteria are very promising as a tool for applications like bio-manufacturing and therapeutics, their limited life span and inability to function as a closed system are major constraints to their usage. We at NUS aim to manipulate the life cycles of bacteria, providing fine control over the metabolic activity of the cell. Our overall goal is to lengthen the time the cells are capable of protein production, thereby improving the viability of future cell-based production systems. (With slight edits, credits to Promega)
