WHY ZJU ROCKS OUR RAINBOWS!

1. Although the conventional perception of biofilms is negative they made

it colorful based on the natural gradients in biofilms! They went on to create

biofilms that can produce sugar or glue in a strategic step by step process as

well as biofilms that can serve as multi-functional biosensors in adverse

environmental conditions.

2. They have a really diverse human practices project: novels, app games,

funding studies… I played that app game! It’s tough :P
