One year ago, to the week, a group of driven students came to us with a exciting idea- they wanted to represent the Hebrew University of Jerusalem at iGEM- the worlds biggest synthetic biology competition.

After a year of hard work the results are in. Of over 300 teams our students' work was nominated for best software tool, won second place in the environmental project category, and won the best plant synthetic biology award!!

Biochemistry Institute Day

June 8, 2017

Last week, the Institute of Biochemistry, Food Science and Nutrition held an "Institute Day".

Students, Researchers and faculty traveled to Kibbutz Zova, where several students presented their research, and a "kahoot" game was held to help people get to know each other better.

After the lectures, there were excellent chocolate and wine workshops. The Day was very successful and left participants with an appetite for more. The day was organized by Dr. Zvi Hayouka with help from Yael Fructer and the Head of the Institute, Prof. Oren Froy.
