We are a student-led undergraduate synthetic biology research group based in the University of Toronto. Every year we design and execute a research project and compete with teams from across the globe at the iGEM Giant Jamboree.
For the past two years we’ve been designing enzymes for plastic degradation with machine learning. Our 2019/2020 project won gold and was nominated for the undergraduate manufacturing track’s best project. In 2021 we will continue the pursuit towards a highly thermostable and catalytically active enzyme for industrialized plastic waste recycling. We will disseminate our results at the Giant Jamboree in Paris and as a preprint for submission to NeurIPS workshops. You can support our research by joining us or sponsoring us!
