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
We also created a teaching package containing a lesson plan, a class presentation and additional theoretical materials for teachers, a crossword, and an educational game SYNMOD, available for Android and iOS. It is aimed to teach the principles of synthetic biology and inform players about the problem of drug resistance, ways to overcome it, and novel antibiotics production.
KNOW YOUR AMINO-ACIDS
