  • Who you are: Synthetic Biology Research Group.
  • Who you are: Synthetic Biology Research Group. Wetlab and Software Tools teams. 12-30 core members. 5-8 core advising professors. Lab space in IGB. MCB, IB, AgE, BioE, ChemE, CS, PhysE. Also glad to have any engineering discipline, business majors, and more.Synthetic Biology = application of engineering principles to molecular biology.  BioBrick parts like GFP or another gene that will allow a cell to float by producing gas vessicles. iGEM is an international competition. Universities from across the world put together teams of undergraduates to compete at the annual jamboree at MIT. Last year was 120 teams and over 1300 participants. This year we expect ot have ~180 teams.What you do: Synthetic Biology projects. Classic examples include: Hello World, E. Chromi, Bacterial Decoder.
  • Plan to succeed: In terms of being a stable RSO, we will continue to recruit a strong team and pass on lab experiences and research from year to year. We will continue to request funding and support from the IGB, SORF, Design Council, and possibly ACES. Though it has varied from year to year, we have a strong officer board with two directors, a treasurer, secretary, science director, technical directors, and an outreach/publicity director.Why does your society want to join Engineering Council? Synthetic Biology is essentially the application of engineering principles to biology. Our membership is usually half engineers and half MCB, IB, Agricultural, or other majors. Many of the engineers have already experienced the benefits of being part of an EC society. All members within iGEM who have non-engineering majors also realize the importance of engineering and would appreciate being part of the engineering community at UIUC. In terms of membership benefits, we would particularly enjoy participating in events like E-night, being able to advertise events to all of engineering, and the opportunity to receive funding.
