About This Project
One of the biggest roadblocks to having clear skin is acne, and despite all the effective treatment options available, the mechanisms causing acne are still unclear. The 2014 Pitt iGEM team is improving our understanding of acne by developing a procedure to genetically engineer the skin bacterium, P. acnes, often associated with acne. Using our methods, scientists will be able to manipulate and study this bacterium for the first time.
