Goodbye Azodye UCL iGEM 2014

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

We are using Synthetic Biology to beat AZO DYE Pollution. Azo Dyes are the most common synthetic dye and are used everywhere, from food colouring to clothes. You're probably wearing clothes dyed with Azo-Dyes! But, when they get into waste water, dumped from textile factories, they're very toxic. Our team is engineering bacteria that break down these dyes by producing a group of powerful enzymes. These bacteria make the Dye colourless and safe for the environment
