BINDER supports rising stars

BINDER supports students at the Technical University of Darmstadt participating in a competition in the field of synthetic biology.



Tuttlingen – As a specialist in climate chambers for scientific and industrial laboratories, research is close to BINDER's heart. We therefore regularly support projects with the goal of researching the well-being of mankind. This is the third time BINDER is supporting the students at the Technical University of Darmstadt, who regularly take place in the iGEM competition, an interdisciplinary academic competition in the field of synthetic biology. The iGEM competition is targeted at students who use standardized components to construct and characterize a "biological machine." The goal is to highlight and tackle current problems in these areas with such a machine. The Technical University of Darmstadt also entered a team in the iGEM competition last year to work on a biotechnical solution for creating energy. The aim of the 2014 iGEM team was to develop a solar cell from plant pigments that could be used to create continuous access to bio-energy from self-produced pigment. The students took second place in this competition—an incredible success! Our donation made it possible for the students to conduct innovative independent research, gain new skills and establish international contacts. In October of this year, we will see how far the students at the Technical University of Darmstadt will come. We have our fingers crossed that they will take one of the top places.
