A year ago, Synbiota welcomed Amino Labs to complete a short residency in our Toronto office. A year later Amino Labs is launching a global challenge with STEM partner The BioBuilder Educational Foundation with the goal of creating 100,000 new bioengineers in 100 days through the use of a simulation game. The official launch of #100Kbio is Tuesday September 20th, 2016

"Genetic engineers produce medicine, food, fuel, household products and now materials. There are genetically engineered consumer products in the hands of hundreds of millions of people each day, and this will continue to increase. We depend heavily on these "bio-products" and it is vital that we learn about the technology. We challenge you to become a Virtual Bioengineer!"

This is a big goal and they need your help to reach it! Full campaign details are here:


How you can help:

  • do the challenge and get your #100Kbio Virtual Bioengineer Certificate
  • if you work in the field, share the challenge with your friends and family! they probably wonder what you do all day at work
  • amplify genetic engineering and GMO know-how by sharing the campaign within your networks
  • if you are a teacher, have your class do the challenge as part of genetics class or as homework
  • if you know a teacher, challenge them and their students to complete the challenge
  • you can even embed the game-like simulator in your website
