Synterception

Multi-Facted Biocontainment

Biocontainment is imperative in any synthetic biological system designed for release in the environment. In microbes, this imperative is even more pronounced, due to the possibility of horizontal gene transfer among a population.

That is why Michigan State iGEM chose to create the Synterception, a tripartite biocontainment system designed to inhibit horizontal gene transfer to and from the host.
