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.
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).
Our group is an interdisciplinary conglomeration that includes researchers from The School of Engineering and Applied Science, The College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Medicine.

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.
