Plug and play with biology?  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  

Know your Amino-Acids
