Students at TU Delft are using the latest technology to develop bacteria cells that can independently produce a bio-lens. The DNA in the bacteria cells is processed to enable the cells to form a micro-lens independently. The lenses, that can be used for microscopy, for example, also have the potential for making solar cells of the future more efficient. With their bio-lenses, the team of students are hoping for victory at the international student 'iGEM' (International Genetically Engineered Machine) competition held in Boston from 27 to 31 October. In the competition, students attempt to solve problems in society with the aid of synthetic biology.NEXT ARTICLE
