Dear Colleagues,

You might have heard about iGEM, the International Genetically Engineered Machine competition (iGEM). I personally became interested in this competition after Malcolm Campbell gave a lecture for us in December 2009. You can see his lectures including the one he gave at the University of Debrecen ( through video connection ) here.  The group coordinated by Malcolm has an excellent Synthetic Bio summary here.

Synthetic Biology is about changing the design of biological entities (like vectors or small systems) into a more predictable, engineer type design.


So we registered with a team Debrecen Hungary. I hope I can keep you updated with the developments.

The best short video about what synthetic biology is can be seen below.
