Team NRP-UEA-Norwich iGEM 2013 are developing a biosensor that will enable the identification of novel antimycin-producing strains of streptomycetes. Building up a library of antimycin gene clusters will broaden known pathway (biosynthetic) diversity with the foresight of facilitating genetic engineering. In the long term, pathways could be engineered to create new variants of antimycin with unique or enhanced properties.

The University of East Anglia, working in collaboration with partner institutes across the Norwich Research Park, would like to introduce the 2013 NRP-UEA_Norwich iGEM team. Our team includes seven students from across the Faculty of Science. We will be based predominantly at the School of Biological Sciences at UEA..
