  1. Functional Engineering of a Photosynthetic Desalination Pump Circuit

    SBC: Phytodetectors, Inc.            Topic: G

    Phytodetectors will design and engineer a synthetic biological pump circuit to increase the volume of water produced via photosynthetic desalination. This project builds off previous technology designed by Phytodetectors: a mangrove-inspired ultra-filter that allows plants to purify salt water as well as secrete water with properties comparable to bottled water. The partnership seeks to demonstrat ...
