Take an industrial byproduct, treat it with the E. coli bacteria, and create a usable fragrance product for use in pharmaceuticals and other applications. That genetic engineering concept was golden for a team of UT students who recently participated in the annual iGem Competition Giant Jamboree in Boston.
