IISc students win again at iGEM

IISc’s UG students participated again this year in the iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) competition, and have once again won the gold medal at the iGEM Grand Jamboree 2022, making this the fifth time an IISc team has won. The team also won the nomination for the ‘Best Climate Crisis Project.’ This is also the first time a team from IISc has been nominated for the track awards, apart from winning the gold medal, which is a significant milestone.

For their iGEM project, the team worked on bioengineering Pseudomonas putida to degrade halocarbon-based refrigerants using the principles of Synthetic Biology.
