Tartu TUIT meets an iGEM ambassador in Tartu

This Thursday, February 14, representatives of the Tartu TUIT team met the IGEM Ambassador Mr. Will Wright, in Tartu!

Together with Mr. Wright, we not only talked about our experience in iGEM, the problems we faced during our last year’s project, but also were able to attend a seminar “Getting more value from biomass: Overcoming the toxicity of hydrolysates for more effective fermentation processes” by Solange I. Mussatto, group leader DTU Biosustainfrom, Copenhagen. After that, we asked Mr. Wright some questions, and he, with his experience, shared some ideas on how to get additional sponsorship to cover the costs of the project. 

We were pleased to meet Mr. Wright that day and look forward to meeting him at the annual iGEM meeting in Copenhagen.
