About The Book:
Book 5 introduced Quantum Mechanics for young readers, now Book 6 introduces synthetic biology!
Totto and friends become the first children to visit a brand new theme park called Syn City. They are excited to see the extinct Tasmanian tigers, the dodo birds and real life unicorns, but someone lets the animals run loose.
Before the African mosquitoes and Tasmanian tigers can find the children, they must make a dangerous journey to escape, and uncover a nefarious plan.
This book was made possible by a collaboration between the author and the National University of Singapore Synthetic Biology for Clinical and Technological Innovation (NUS SynCTI).
SynCTI was established in 2014 as the focal point for synthetic biology at the National University of Singapore. SynCTI brings together scientists, engineers and clinicians from the Faculties of Science, Engineering and Medicine to engineer biology with intent for a circular future. Its missions include research and education excellence, training of next-generation synthetic biologists, and societal engagement towards a sustainable bioeconomy.
With more than 60 research staff and students, SynCTI also coordinates the Singapore Consortium for Synthetic Biology (SINERGY), Singapore's national platform for synthetic biology.
