Sponsor the new team!

The new team

The new University of Leicester iGEM 2013 team is fully formed and ready to go!

The new team will be building on the 2012 quest to develop a bacteria to bio degrade polystyrene along with two other awesome arms to the project which can be seen on the new blog. This year, there is a new supervisor to help with the project, Dr Andrew Jamieson a Lecture in Organic chemistry, along with myself staying with the team as a advisor and the Lab Leader, Luke Thompson, also helping with the team.

There will be many chances for you to help the new team, with a new Citizen Science project being launched soon. Check out the new 2013 blog at http://uoligem.blogspot.co.uk/ where you can keep up to date with the progress of the new team and see how you can help.
