We work with schools from Scotland to characterise the “Microbiome of Scotland”. We started by collecting soil with P5, P6 and P7 pupils from various Schools in Fife, and next year we will expand the project to several other schools in Scotland.
We will extract DNA from soil samples and determine which bacteria are present. All data will be freely available to the community in a website (under preparation).

We hosted and mentored the 2018 and 2019 team for the iGEM competition! Everyone worked hard throughout the summer, and their progress can be seen here.
