2007 Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine (VGEM) Team

Welcome to the Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine (VGEM) Team's wiki! The VGEM Team is an undergraduate research group interested in synthetic biology and biological engineering, and will compete in MIT's 2007 international Genetically Engineered Machines competition (iGEM) in November. We'll be adding new information regularly, so be sure to check up on us soon. - George McArthur

Acknowledgements

This team was made possible by the generous support from the following groups at the University of Virginia:
The School of Engineering and Applied Science
The Virginia Engineering Foundation
The Office of the Vice President for Research
The Department of Chemical Engineering
The Department of Biomedical Engineering
The Department of Biology

The VGEM team would like to especially thank the following for in-kind support:

Resources Project


We have three projects designed and we're working on running them in E. coli. Click on "Projects" for brief descriptions and references (more details will be posted on our iGEM wiki towards the end of the summer). Our group is also interested in environmental biological engineering and we'll be pursuing additional projects throughout the summer.

Planning

We discussed relevant literature, brainstormed project ideas and planned for the summer during our weekly meetings throughout the spring semester. Currently, we've stocked our lab with materials and supplies, and will start handling the bacteria tomorrow (5 June 2007).

Engineering is a great profession. There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege.

- Herbert Hoover (1874-1964)
