Introducing the Missouri Miners

Our History

The S&T iGEM team has been around since 2007, when we competed with our ethanol sensor project. Our current project is to construct a microbial fuel cell using four outer membrane cytochrome genes from Geobacter and placing them into E. coli. This will allow the easy-to-work-with aerobic E. coli to complete its electron shuttling pathway outside the cell, kicking out electrons that can be used in an electric circuit.

The University takes part in the Green Energy Initiative, and our E3 Commons is an indicator of our commitment to sustainability and responsible energy research and development.

Our Town: Rolla, The Middle of Everywhere

A town of about 18,000, Rolla plays the generous host to Missouri S&T. Rolla is located in southeast Missouri between Springfield and St. Louis.
