Patterns are fascinating, from the veins of a leaf to the spots on a zebra, from a single cell to a whole organism. Patterns are found everywhere in nature, but how these are formed is not entirely clear. We, the KU Leuven 2015 iGEM team, decided to work on the fundamental mechanisms behind pattern formation. The way cells interact to generate a specific pattern has triggered our curiosity and added a new dimension to the way the patterns are looked upon. Our mission is to create different and astonishing biological patterns with engineered bacteria for a better understanding of nature with the prospect of applying the knowledge in industry.
