SynbiGreen Survey

Synthetic biology is a new multidisciplinary field. Thus ITB_Indonesia team wanted to share synthetic biology knowledge and also had a vision to help the initiation of synbio group in other universities. One of the implementation was through the introduction of synthetic biology in Pasundan University.

In this activity, questionnaire was propagated to know the opinion of UNPAS students about synthetic biology. The result told us that 100% respondent showed an interest to study it and they thought that synthetic biology could be used to solve Indonesian problems: 17.24% of the respondent wanted to solve health problems through synthetic biology, 13.79% from the respondent wanted to solve environment problems, and 62% respondent thought that energy problems could be solved through synthetic biology.

Survey about plastic issue that will be brought by team ITB_Indonesia to iGEM competition in Boston was also take place in this activity. From the survey, 57% respondent used plastic in their daily activity and 48% of the respondent discarded the plastic waste. Awareness to recycle plastic waste was very low and may caused accumulation of plastic waste, especially bottle packaging. Therefore, degradation system that environmentally friendly was required.
