Browsing all the available projects from the past years is becoming a big task. A categorized list of the projects will hopefully provide a better overview making this task easier. This is just a start-up, so please add projects and categories to complete this list.

Contents

2009 Competition

Health & Medicine

  • Restoration and maintenance of homeostasis through oscillations between dampening pathologic inflammation and immunosuppression - Stanford 2009

Energy

Environment - sensing or remediation

  • Production of color pigments in response to different concentrations of an inducer - Cambridge 2009

Information processing

A cell-to-cell communication system that allows for the propagation of a set of instructions coded onto a plasmid - TUDelft 2009

Foundational research

  • A “bio-screen” of voltage-activated yeast cells, where every “cellular pixel” produces light - Valencia 2009

Manufacturing

  • Versatile protein production and delivery platform for targeting the intestine. Modules include drug production, self-encapsulation, and genome deletion. - Imperial College London 2009


2007 Competition

Health & Medicine

  • A synthetic biology approach against HIV - Ljubljana 2007

  • Targeting a specific subset of cells with a virus, based on (m?)RNA or protein expression profiles - Caltech 2007
  • Repairing damaged heart cells by integrating healthy ES-cell-like cells that are autonomously differentiated towards cardiomyocites into the heart - Bay Area RSI 2007
  • Cancer specific RNAi mediated cell destruction - Princeton 2007
  • Phage that select against bacterial resistance (Project 1 of 2) - Rice 2007
  • Designing a biological system to sense environmental glucose concentration and decrease the level of glucose by releasing insulin - Taipei 2007
  • Using bacteria to bind to targeted cells in a body, and under influence of enough bacteria (quorum sensing) evoke a desired response (like: kill the bad cell) - Harvard 2007
  • Using an AHL sensor (molecule secreted by biofilm microorganisms) and GFP reporter to detect biofilm formation in catheters. Imperial College London 2007
