Tackle Plastic In The Ocean With Synthetic Bacteria (+VIDEO)

plastic junk, bacteria
Students from University College London have decided to tackle the tiny pieces of plastic in the ocean with the synthetic bacteria customized with three genetic ‘modules’. Once the bacteria find some plastic (module one or detection), they start extruding a sticky substance (aggregation module), and later the island that can be easily detected is formed with the stuck together bits. This project is an entry for the synthetic biology competition iGEM, and you can help kids fundraise 1,500 if you find this idea valuable.
