Who we are

Who did what

The teams were assembled during our winter quarter. During this term we went around to classes and had weekly meetings to introduce students to synthetic biology through a series of guest lectures. During the spring, students participated in brainstorming projects related to the sponsoring Faculty advisors labs (Baker and Klavins) and came up with the project they wanted to carry out. Students also planned and partcipated in community outreach events where we taught our community about synthetic biology. Over the summer, students completed all of the experimental work, but worked closely with both graduate students and faculty advisors to plan the most pertinent experiments and make the most of our limited time.
