2012 marks the fourth year of the Cornell iGEM team's participation in the competition. Last year we did very well, and this year we aim to do even better!
Our project this year is a continuous electrical biosensor for water contaminants using the ability of Shewanella oneidensis to reduce metals in addition to oxygen. We are focusing on detection of arsenates, napthalene, and nitrates, but our design is modular, allowing it to be adapted to detection of other contaminants.
