On August 24, the finals of the "National College Student Life Science Competition (2022)" hosted by the National College Student Life Science Competition Committee and hosted by Anhui Agricultural University came to an end. A total of 12 works in Hebei Province have won national awards. Our school won 3 national first prizes (including 2 scientific inquiry and 1 innovation and entrepreneurship), 3 second prizes and 4 third prizes.


In this competition, the team of our school focused on the key points of scientific research innovation and pinpointed the focus of social value. From scientific research breakthroughs to project ideas, they were well received by the on-site judges. Among them, the national first prize project "Development and Research of CRISPR Genome Editing Tools with Low Off-target Effects in Plants" is mainly devoted to the research of CRISPR genome editing technology in plants, and the development of more efficient, safe and multi-faceted editing tools. The application of this technology in crops provides technical support, and scientific research assists the development of our agricultural gene editing industrialization. The team has won the national first prize for three consecutive years; the national first prize project "Using engineered yeast to "brew" natural plant pigments -Beet Pigment" is mainly dedicated to the application of cutting-edge biotechnology to empower the food industry to produce "safer, more nutritious, more convenient, more delicious, and more sustainable" food; the national first prize project "Efficient Transformation of Sweet Sorghum Straw Biosynthesis" "Innovative Research on L-lactic Acid" aims to realize the integration and strengthening of the biocatalytic process, reduce the process water consumption, improve the production efficiency, and provide a new way to realize the rational utilization of my country's abundant agricultural waste resources.


In this "Life Science Competition", a total of 8,614 teams from 528 colleges and universities across the country signed up for the competition. After school competitions and provincial competitions in 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions across the country, 1272 teams entered the finals. The School of Food and Biology of our school hosted the finals of the Hebei Division of this competition, and finally 10 teams were shortlisted for the national competition. Affected by the epidemic, this competition adopts the method of online team participation and online and offline evaluation by judges.


This competition exercised students' innovative consciousness, team spirit and practical ability, broadened the students' scientific horizons, demonstrated the good competition style and strong comprehensive quality of the students of the University of Science and Technology, and also improved the quality of biology talents training and undertaking in the future. Large-scale events above the provincial level have accumulated valuable experience.
