We would also like to thank Dr. Mayer of the Biology Department for allowing us to access to the plate reader.
This project was conceptualization and designed by our team. Our faculty mentors helped us by teaching us new biological and nanoscience techniques. When our project encountered problems our mentors were available to help guide us through troubleshooting but the execution of the experiments were performed by the students on the team.
Active in all parts of the project. Farzana played a leading role in the synthesis of our nanowires. She also aided in building our expression plasmids, performing protein test expressions and building our biobricks. She was a major driving force behind this project.
Brian played a leading role in the design and execution of this project. He is credited with the research background and helping determine our mutant enzymes. He played an extensive role in creating our expression plasmids, verifying ligation results, isolating our proteins and characterizing their activity.
Amanda has played a key role in organizing and managing our fundraising events for our iGEM team. She has also aided in the synthesis of our nanowires and other research aspects of the project.
Syeda has played a critical role in establishing our wiki page and being our IT administrator.
Ashley has been playing a critical role behind the scenes as a student advisor and administrator. Ashley has been coordinating and partaking in meetings with our external advisor and has also played the lead role in creating our fundraising page on experiment.com
Dawud has played a role in each of the research aspects of this project. He helped create our expression plasmids, perform test expressions and initiate the digests for our biobricks.
Gregory joined our team later than the other members and did not have much time to enter the lab for physical experiments. He has been contributing by taking a lead role in coordinating our Human Practices efforts. He also helped in the design of our project presentation and poster.
Sam has played a role in various aspects of the project. He has focused mostly on helping build our biobricks.
