Super Cell @ iGEM

The Collaboration

SuperCell - the Synthetic Biology supermarket is a collaborative science and art project of the Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology of the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg and the Media Art Department of the Bauhaus University Weimar. The project is part of the iGEM Competition at MIT in Boston.

The Project

Super Cell is a fictional supermarket website offering speculative products related to Synthetic Biology and our project for iGEM 2010. Our goal is to make possible everyday applications and implications tangible by translating them into products that could fill the supermarket shelfs. Through this we hope to foster a discussion about Synthetic Biology that includes different scientific disciplines as well as the general public.
