The anima factura database selects organisms ranging from micro to macro that acquire a unique biological feature which (we believe) makes them prime/valuable candidates for use in a biological transformation or metamorphosis. We highlight the potential 'super power' in each organism to create an image of what these unique features could do in the emerging field of Synthetic Biology. If you want to know more about the project, please visit the about page.

The selection below marks the beginning of a database of valuable candidates, potentially useful for future purposes of Synthetic Biology. We hope to expand this database by adding more unique organisms, and would love for you to help us! If you know about an interesting organism that you would like to share with others, simply fill in the form on the contribute page and send it to us!
