Team:Calgary/Wetlab Overview


Oviita has three main wet lab components that maximize the nutritional value of Yarrowia lipolytica and enable simple and safe cultivation in VAD communities. This year, the COVID-19 restrictions at the University of Calgary prohibited any lab work until September, and even so, lab times were very restricted with only 6 hours/week and a limited number of people allowed at any given time. But we didn't let that stop our wet lab progress! Instead, we designed extensive and thorough experimental plans, including trouble-shooting protocols, so that we could begin making strides as soon as we entered the lab in September!
