iGEM 2015 team TU Darmstadt
TU_Darmstadt team’s iGEM project combines three technologies: the production of a bio-resin suitable for 3D printing via metabolic engineering of E.coli bacterium, a do-it-yourself open-source 3D-printer, and a software for scanning body parts. The application scenario envisions cheap and personalized prostheses, produced by 3D printing with based on light-induced polymerization, for disabled people in crisis regions of the world. Their technomoral scenario explores through four short stories different ways the applications may be received globally. As part of their scenario preparation, they also held a seminar in Darmstadt about synthetic biology, open science and biohackerspaces.
