We are a team of 13 aspiring undergraduates from the Maastricht Science Programme of Maastricht University. Once a year the poisonous Oak Processionary Caterpillar emerges and affects hundreds of thousands of people in the Netherlands alone. As current methods are often costly, non-specific and/or ineffective, our aim is to combat this by genetically engineering a bacterial pesticide specific for the Oak Processionary Caterpillar, without harming other insects/wildlife.
