It was a pleasure to have so many international researchers joining us in Madrid last September for our first R4B Symposium! We enjoyed the meeting very much and so did our guests! We collected their impressions in this video:
What does the future hold for synthetic biology? The outlook of this field is for sure very promising but there may be different paths ahead of it in both the academic and the industrial sectors. Our partner Veronika Stepankova from Enantis tell us more about this in the latest episode of our video series [...]
Do you want to learn more about the two main characters of our investigation? Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli, two different microbes with different features that we summarized in our new poster infographics. Discover more about these fascinating microorganisms at a glance! This month is time for Bacillus!
We are not schoolkids anymore but lifelong learning is still our mindset at Rafts4Biotech. Thus, after a short summer break, we prepared a month full of training and dissemination activities to start off strong with our “school-year” and to foster knowledge exchange! We started with our fourth General Assembly at the headquarters of CSIC in the [...]
At Rafts4Biotech we want to foster open science and dissemination and thus we prepared this video protocol to share it with the whole scientific community. In just a few minutes you will learn how to isolate lipid rafts step by step. Ready? Click below!
In this month’s #MeetTheTeam video we introduce you to our project coordinator Daniel López and his lab at CNB-CSIC. From destroying bacterial lipid rafts to fight pathogens and infection to constructing synthetic rafts to improve biotechnological processes, Daniel and his team know all about these cellular microdomains! Watch this video and find out more! [...]
Spider silk made by goats, meatless meat brewed by yeast or animal-free leather produced by bacteria. For many, these inventions may sound like science-fiction, but they are real products available thanks to synthetic biology (synbio). A scientific field that remains unknown for most of the population, and we know what happens when scientific innovation moves [...]
It’s amazing how time flies! At Rafts4Biotech we just recently completed the first 18 months of our project and thus we gathered in Brussels for our first monitoring meeting with the EC officer Carmen de Vicente and the expert Mickaël Desvaux. All the work package leaders presented their achievements and it was a great [...]
Lifelong learning is our mindset and thus, at Rafts4Biotech we are organising our first training activity this September 18th &19th . Our R4B Symposium will take place in Madrid and will have Lipid Membrane Eukaryotic & Prokaryotic Biology Symposium as a central topic, as membranes play a key role in our project. This symposium [...]
The new episode of our new video series #TheFutureOfSynbio features our partner Uwe Völker fom Greifswald University. He explains us how model organisms like Bacillus subtilis can help us answering the most basic questions of Biology! Thanks to Synbio and the OMICS technologies we can understand how cells function at the molecular level and [...]
