At the Jamboree, iTesla-SoundBio was able to present the project that they had been working on for the past year in SoundBio’s labspace. Their 2018 project focused on synthesizing a protein called Factor C. This protein is found in the Limulus amoebocyte lysate assay that coagulates in the presence of endotoxin.  

At the Jamboree, iTesla-SoundBio was delighted to be awarded Bronze for their project! The team learned more about the field of synthetic biology, met some amazing teams from around the world, and had a blast doing it.
