2010 Proposal Summary
In the progressive spirit of iGEM, the 2010 UIUC Software Team is building a novel, web-based program to design a plasmid, which utilizes last year's project, IMPtools, to design the plasmid off of the planned metabolic process.
The 2010 UIUC Software Team project is a web-based program suite conceived to simplify large-scale metabolic engineering through bacterial plasmid design.
More to come later on the development of the project and wiki page.

The requirements to earn a Bronze Mousepad are:
- Register the team, have a great summer, and have fun attending the Jamboree.
- Create and share a Description of the team's project via the iGEM wiki.
- Present a Poster and Talk at the iGEM Jamboree.
- Develop and make available via the Registry an open source software tool that supports synthetic biology based on BioBrick standard biological parts (remember, the iGEM judges will be looking for substantial team-based software projects).
The requirements to earn a Silver Mousepad, in addition to the Bronze Mousepad requirements, are:
- Provide a detailed, draft specification for the next version of your software tool, or a second, distinct software tools project.
The requirements to earn a Gold Mousepad, in addition to the Silver Mousepad requirements, are:
- Help another iGEM team by, for example, analyzing a Part, debugging a Device, or modeling or simulating a System.
- Develop and document a new technical standard that supports the (i) design of BioBrick Parts or Devices, or (ii) construction of BioBrick Parts or Devices, or (iii) characterization of BioBrick Parts or Devices, or (iv) analysis, modeling, and simulation of BioBrick Parts or Devices, or (v) sharing of BioBrick Parts or Devices, either via physical DNA or as information via the internet.
- Outline and detail a new approach to an issue of Human Practice in synthetic biology as it relates to your project, such as safety, security, ethics, or ownership, sharing, and innovation.
