A “bio-screen” of voltage-activated cells, where every “cellular pixel” produces light. Using electrical signals instead of chemical stimulation, we are able to see animated pictures!
Engineered yeasts able to sense and respond to electrical signals are build (what we call LEC). Thanks to a homemade device these LECs work cooperatively in such a way that they are able to reproduce images in movement, building up a "bio-screen" for the first time in history.
Human Practices Report
Sins, Ethics and Biology, a Comprehensive Approach is more than a review on Human Practices and Synthetic Biology it emcompasses:
Classical review revising more than 50 scientific reports on Human Practices.
The first comparative analysis of previous iGEM HP projects.
Interviews with well known experts.
The largest survey on ethics and synthetic biology ever made.
We gathered an eminent multidisciplinary group:
4 Biologist, 3 Mechanical Engineers and 2 BiotechWith a great repercusion in the national media!
