The TU-Dresden iGEM team was responsible for the majority of the work shown here. However, we received additional support from several advisors. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to help make our iGEM project successful and an enjoyable and memorable experience.
The Faculty of Biology of Dresden University of Technology, for providing us with the lab and working space.
The B. subtilis expert par excellence Prof. Dr. Thorsten Mascher, for providing advice in microbiology and experimental design.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hans-Georg Braun, for giving us the opportunity to work with Peptidosomes and sharing his expertise on producing and maintaining them.
Franziska Dürr and Philipp Popp, for supervising our lab techniques and providing iGEM advice as past participators and graduate students. Without their knowledge and their overview our project would not have been the same.
A huge thank you goes to Annett Schneider (Prodokanat Biologie TU Dresden), for managing our finances and giving incredible advice to guide us through German bureaucracy. Due to her efforts, we did not have to focus so much on managing our financials, and were instead able to focus our time and energy on our project design and lab work.
