Download The Art of Antibiotics
The art-science booklet The Art of Antibiotics about our last residency program is now free to download as a PDF.
“A synthetic peptide version of the age-old remedy Theriak. A Turing machine inspired process that transforms DNA into music. Sarah Craske and Eduardo Miranda approach the antimicrobial resistance crisis from completely novel perspectives by venturing into the science lab in the scope of SYNPEPTIDE project’s art-science collaboration on synthetic antibiotics. By administering medicine to a city (map) and via the sonification of medicines, their creations open up new vistas.”
Battle for Cattle
In Battle for Cattle you run your own farm, and perform vaccine research to combat diseases. But be quick, otherwise you might be too late to save your cows!
Battle for Cattle is a fun game where you learn everything about diseases, treatment, bacteria and viruses. As a player, you are confronted with sick farm animals and the problem of antibiotics overuse. To save the lives of cows on your farm, you need to take control over the design of a synthetic biology vaccine.
The game is inspired by and part of a real synthetic biology research project funded by the EU, MycoSynVac.
