Plug and play with biology? With SYNMOD you can!
Synthetic Biology is the re-design of existing, natural biological systems for useful purposes. And SYNMOD is based on a real scientific project that uses synthetic biology to design new antibiotics.
Now, with this app you can join us to:
- create peptide modules by assembling amino acids
- combine and test these peptide modules in a slot machine
- discover antibiotic substances to kill some nasty bugs
Get to know the 20 elementary amino acids that can be found in every living organism on this planet. Use the amino acids to build peptide modules. See how special sulfur bridges are built that make the peptides stronger. Then combine five peptide modules and create an antibiotic that you can spray directly on some mean disease causing bacteria.
