Welcome to our homepage.
We are the iGEM Team from the University of Göttingen in 2016. Browse our website to find all news and information about us, our project, and the iGEM competition.
We proudly present our Stop-Motion movie about our project. See how important Vitamin B is, and how we are going to make the production easier and cheaper.
Collaborations are very important for iGEM. Yesterday, we got visit from Patrick from the iGEM Team TU Darmstadt. We tested the compatibility of their biosafety biobricks with our production organisms. Thank you very much, Darmstadt!
Of course, we are working only with ultra high precision tools for our proof of concept!
(Indeed, sometimes, the traditional methods prove oneself as the best!)
Just another group meeting of our Team. The preparations for the Giant Jamboree in Boston is reaching the critical phase.
Finally, our postcards arrived! In a nationwide educational action, we will distribute these and also the the postcards by the iGEM Teams from Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hannover, Aachen, Marburg, Bielefeld, Tübingen and Erlangen.
Yippeah, we made it into the local newspaper, the Göttinger Tageblatt! Thank your for the article.
Team Building is very important! So we proved our team strength at Breakout Göttingen. It was an awesome experience, and of course we all made it just in time!
Today, at the GZMB symposium, was the first time ever that we presented our project to an audience full of real grown up scientists... but finally we made it!
Today, Patrick from the iGEM Team from TU Darmstadt presented their really interesting biosafety project to us. Great work!
Interested in some more detail? Here comes the poster we presented to the other european iGEM teams in Paris
We presented our project at the European Experience in Paris to other iGEM teams from Europe.
What a great experience!!
Our Sponsor Zymo Research Europe also provided us with some awesome fancy T-Shirts! Thank you very much :)
Marieke gives you the reason why microbial production of chemicals like Vitamin B12 has such an enormous potential:
Why is especially a Vitamin B12 deficiency so dangerous, and might end up life-threatening suddenly? The second Tobi's fact gives you the answer:
Gregor's fact tells us that Vitamin B12 is furthermore involved in the development of the nervous system:
Nora states a very important reason why artificially produced Vitamin B12 supplements may be essential, despite of a Vitamin rich diet:
