What kind image do you have when you hear the word “termite”??
Actually, this tiny insect has unimaginable voracity.
They cause great damage for human life, but there is no way to exterminate terites completely and safely.
To solve this problem, Tokyo-NoKoGen “ExTermite Coli”, a new pesticides for Termites !!
The exterminateon of termites by ExTermite Coli involves three steps.
We use “pseudo egg” to distribute the engineered E.coli. Using this unique tool, the engineered E.coli carried into the termite’s body.
In the termite’s body, it produces toxic material to inhibit the metabolic pathway of the termites and exterminate termites.
After extermination of the termites, ExTermite Coli loses its function by light-induced lysis.
On the project page, we explain about the details of our project, ExTermite Coli.
