Places to advertise/recruit students:

  • BE180: done (Drew)
  • Biology undergrads (bioundgrd, busa are the two mailing lists. I'll speak to the moderator)
  • MIT UROP posting
  • Previous iGEM participants
  • Posters
  • Chemical engineering undergrads (contacted undergrad program coordinator)
  • BMES (contacted officers)

How about this:

Title

Join the MIT iGEM Competition Team!

Description

iGEM, the international genetically engineered machines competition, is 6.270 for biological engineers. The objective of the competition is to design and build an engineered biological system using DNA over the course of the summer. Systems will be constructed from standard biological parts (similar to the 6.270 LEGOs). The MIT iGEM team will be made up of 4-5 undergraduates working full-time during summer 2006 on engineering a biological system. The team will be advised by several experienced graduate students. You will have the opportunity to compete against over 30 schools from around the world. You will gain experience in experimental biology techniques such as cloning, PCR, microscopy and flow cytometry as well as teamwork and presenting your work.

Prereqs/Requirements

Biology lab experience would be useful but not an absolute requirement. Enthusiasm and lack of other commitments in the summer is required.

Discussion

  • BC 19:52, 22 March 2006 (EST): So for right now, we basically want this page to be primarily an ad for the team and the competition, correct?
  • RS 20:03, 22 March 2006 (EST): Yes. Once we choose the team, it will become a portal to the team pages.
