Official Team Profile

It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! No, It’s SUPERBACTERIA!

Our SuperBacteria will detect dangerously low or high levels of various nutrients, indicate a fluctuation with a red or green protein from a reporter gene, and correct the concentrations by secreting or absorbing the appropriate nutrient. It is the savior of hydroponics that the world has been looking for! Hydroponics is a system in which plants are grown in a nutrient-rich solution. These bacteria are self-sustaining and will cut the costs of expensive machinery that is currently required to monitor nutrient levels. Currently we are working on having our SuperBacteria detect and indicate non-ideal levels of pH.

We hope to help farmers worldwide by creating a bacteria that can help indicate pH imbalance over a large area and eventually create a bacteria that can help indicate imbalance and correct it.
