The Biology team is SSI's fourth project team, focusing on the intersection between the life sciences and space. The Biology team began work on its pilot project, building a portable, autonomous DNA Synthesizer to send to space, in the 2016-2017 academic year. The Biology team works in the Shriram Center for Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering, using the Uytengsu Teaching Lab space. It is currently developing enzymatic DNA synthesis methods and an electrowetting fluid handling platform for this project, which it aims to launch as a cubesat payload or operate on the International Space Station. The Biology team is also open to other project ideas, particularly relating to astronaut life support, biomaterials for space use, and terraforming for space colonization.
The Biology team's faculty advisor is Prof. Drew Endy, and current team co-leads are
