Violacein growth ramps up at Synbiota – flashback to our video

The energetic and evolving company I have worked with on and off over the last few years – Synbiota – has amassed an impressive amount of violacein from their crowd-sourced ScienceHack. In the summer of 2014, while I was working with them as a creative communications consultant, we collaborated with the amazing illustrator Nik Dudukovic to produce this video (which I scripted and did the voice over for). Read more about how Synbiota is harvesting violacein – a medicinally-valuable compound – from genetically engineered bacteria here.
