Human Practice

The Peking 2013 iGEM team have been focusing on the aromatic pollution in China. First, we conducted a questionnaire survey to gather the information of public awareness of aromatic pollution and its detection. Then we ran an on-the-spot investigation in a printing factory, which uses dyes and intermediates containing aromatic pollutants. Afterwards, we carried a practical analysis by testing the water sample from Weiming Lake on campus. Inheriting the tradition of the Peking iGEM, we guided an iGEM HS team, which will participate the jamboree in 2014. On September 7th, we held the Model iGEM, which was a academic simulation of the iGEM jamboree that allowed participants to communicate with each other and warm up for the regional jamboree.
