Team Uppsala - Killswitch survey

Team Uppsala designed a survey, and says:

"Did your team use a killswitch in the design of your project?

We would be glad if one person or the whole team could give answers representing an iGEM team. You are also welcome to take part in the survey as an individual, but please state so if that is the case. You are welcome to be anonymous if you want, also please state if you are an anonymous team or individual.

Thanks in advance

Team ATOMS-Turkiye - The Cell Game

"Atoms Turkiye designed a 100 meter squared floor game which involves two players(cancer cell and normal cell). Each player travels to different organs via the blood vessels to complete different activities. The aim of this game is for the players to envisage what it's like to be a normal cell or a cancer cell." Watch their video here!

Team ATOMS-Turkiye - Know your cell, know yourself

Team ATOMS-Turkiye says: "SynPhilo's first interactive theatre 'Know Your Cell, Know Yourself' intended to take the audience on a discovery of the behaviour of cancer and its connection to the humans through our organised activities and an act play scripted by our team members. SynPhilo interactive theatre analysed every movement of cancer first scientifically then reasoned its behaviour morally and found the interrelation of cancer with us humans, teaching us how to react through seeing a live example such as cancer that lives within us and slowly pulls the body to death as well as itself." Check out their video!

Team TU-Munich - AutoAnnotator

Team TU-Munich says: "Over the years, many iGEM teams realised, that proper annotation of Biobricks often is tedious and not achieved. As a first step towards a better annotated parts registry, we developed an easy-to-use tool to significantly increase the quality of annotation of you Biobricks within seconds: the AutoAnnotator!"

Team TU-Munich - PhyscoFilter

Team TU-Munich - PhyscoFilter

Team TU-Munich says:"Dear fellow iGEMers, in the past years, many teams have been and actually still are working on Bioremediation to battle global as well as local pollution. Taking solutions to this problem to the next level, we used the moss Physcomitrella patens as self-sustaining, self-renewing, aquatic chassis to create the Team TU-Munich PhyscoFilter, building upon several previous and present iGEM projects"

Team Fudan - iGEMcyclopedia

Team Fudan has updated their iGEMcyclopedia to version 2.0 this year! It is a Wikipedia-like website about iGEM, serving to provide as much information as possible about iGEM, especially the team projects. For each word, it provides a general definition, information about related iGEM teams and their work. It is built on an interactive platform, allowing all the readers to add and edit the entries. You can try it here!

Team BGU Israel - Children's Science Festival

"iGEM BGU Israel participated in the annual children's science festival. We set up a number of activities for children to learn about synthetic and micro biology: growing bacteria from your finger on petri dishes before and after using hand sanitizer (showing the importance of washing your hands as well!), and writing your name in DNA by translating English letters into DNA codons using Craig Venter's Ascii table and making the sequence into colorful decorations of DNA strands for the upcoming holiday season. For the parents and older children, we presented the iGEM foundation and our project, and distributed our public opinion survey about synthetic biology."

Team British Columbia - Team collaboration

Team British Columbia says: "As some of you may already know, Vine is a new app that takes 6 second videos and has been trending all around the world for the past month. So, here is your chance to collaborate with the University of British Columbia by describing your project or biobricks in 6 seconds! You take a vine video from your phone and upload it directly to a twitter account (such as VINEiGEM2013). They get REALLY creative! The description of the collaboration and information on how to use Vine and where to upload your video is available at: 2013.igem.org/Team:British_Columbia/Collaborations."

Team UGent - survey

"Dear iGEMmers,

The team of Ghent University participating in this year's iGEM competition wonders how other teams have experienced iGEM so far and therefore put together a little questionnaire for you to fill in.
It would be great if you could take just a little of your time by filling in this survey: survey link
Thank you and good luck with your project!"

Team TU-Eindhoven - Synthetic Facts

Team TU-Eindhoven says: "As part of the human practices section of our project we created a fact check system called Synthetic Facts. Synthetic Facts is an online system devoted to prove or disprove the most common "facts" about synthetic biology. We are happy to invite you to check it out! While you are at it feel free to post a comment on one of the available "facts" or send us a request to revise one you have seen or heard somewhere."

Team TU-Delft - DIY Typhoon

Team TU-Delft is working on a low-cost DIY Typhoon as part of their Human Practices project! "Lab equipment is rather expensive, they usually range in several ten thousand dollars, which limits some iGEM teams in competing. The solution we are working on is by designing DIY lab equipment: easily assembled, low-cost equipment that still gives good performance. We are now designing a DIY Typhoon (name still to be decided), which can scan petri dishes and 96 well plates for expression of fluorescence at micrometer scale within 2 minutes for around 1500 dollars."

Photos of the designing and building process can be found on the team's Facebook album!

Team Bordeaux - Virtual Lab

Team Bordeaux - Virtual Lab

Team Bordeaux has created a software tool, and says: "For large teams with complicated assemblies strategies or team member rotating without easy way to keep track of what has been done it can be difficult to keep track of what step has been accomplished and which one is left to be done. We have created the Virtual Lab : a dedicated Online Information Management System to help Igem teams visualize the progress of their project in real time and share with their off-site team members. We would like to have the feed back from the Igem community to see if we can further improve the Users Interface and add more functionality. So please register your team and your project and let the Virtual Lab help you organize your remaining experiments."
