Previous iGEM Examples

There has been no incidence of previous iGEM teams investigating Artemisinin or any of its precursors. Many iGEM teams have referenced Ro et al., but only as an example of pathway engineering, or in order to discuss ethics and synthetic biology's potential to positively benefit society. No parts in the parts registry deals with Artemisinin either. Only one [set of parts] mentions a protein, Granulysin, which can potentially be used to fight Malaria.
