Shenzhen_BGIC_0101 is a special consortium named after a city and a academy. Team members are not from one school, but six. In their 3rd or 4th year in university, some undergraduate students came to Shenzhen_BGIC_0101 and joined a co-cultured program called Innovation Classes on Genomics, in BGI College. After lectures introducing synthetic biology and iGEM given by our instructor K2, students from five schools, including HUST, SCU, SCUT, UESTC, SCNU, SEU, have decided to set up a united team for iGEM 2013. Students from five different universities have contributed to this project.

- Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China
- Sichuan University, China
- South China University of Technology, China
- University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, China
- South China Normal University, China

Attributions & Support

Financial support:

BGI College, it paid team & attendance registration fee, traveling allowance and accommodation fee for us.

Workplace & desktop & test environment provider:

BGI, Shenzhen, it provided us enough room to discuss, work together, organize meetings and also at least 7 desktops. BGI also allowed us to test our plug-ins and program on mainframe.

Server support:

Thanks Dr. Huixiong Li from UESTC supports us a web server.

Brain storming support:

Mr. Kang Kang joined the brain-storming often to give suggestions.

Software design guidance:

Mr. Yun Wang assisted us to design the third module SegmMan, assembly from 2k minichunks to 10k chunks, and then to 30k megachunks.
Dr. Patrick Yizhi Cai checked the assembly strategy, and point out some errors of design principle, especially in the homologous recombination from 30k megachunks to whole chromosome.

Software based framework provider:

Jbrowse & Gbrowse from GMOD.
GeneDesign & BioStudio from Dr. Sarah Richardson of John Hopkins University.
GASP from Dr. Eroshenko from Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Drawing support:

Mr. Boxian Wang from USB helped us to copy hand painted drawings into mouse painted.

Team shirt design support:

Mr. Kang Kang helped us to design two types of shirts, one for team members, another for advertising and sales.

We would like to thank all the people who came to South China regional workshop and gave feedbacks to us.
Dr Jiankui He from SUSTC, Peng Nie from SYSU, Ruosang Qiu from XMU.
And all people who withdrew our team at early time:
Silong Sun, Jing Lu, Hanshi Xu, Yi Zhao, He Zhang and Weilin Qiu.

Wenzhuo Zeng

She is responsible for the pathway drawing of Genovo


Boxian Lai

He is responsible for designing oligonucleotides and primers for synthesis on a chip.



Errrggg! Yu is busy!
He is Research Scientist in BGI Research Institute & ZMBH PhD Candidate. As an observer, he is peering natural history. As an investigator, he is digging the design principle of molecular system. As an engineer, he is stacking molecular system with special function.



Yue (Chantal) Shen is the Leader of the Synthetic Biology Unit of the Beijing Genomics Institute, Shenzhen. She received her Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Melbourne. Her work focuses on metagenomic sequencing, assembly, and characterization of genes found in the human intestinal tract. She also leads international cooperative projects, including the E. coli Central Dogma Project with the BIOFAB and the SC2.0 Project with Johns Hopkins University.



Mr. Yun Wang,project manager of Unit of Synthetic Biology in BGI. He is responsible for the SC2.0 project in BGI, about chrII and chrVII.



In BGI, K2 is veeeeery famous for lurking on BBS and sarcasm! As a former champion in a national robot contest, a hacker, a web engineer, a designer, a magazine editor, a citizen reporter, a filmmaker and a drama actor, he has always too many wonderings, including how life works on its core database - genome. Cracking and hacking the code of life, making actors in cell perform on his scripts, has become the primary task of this young scientist.



Dr. Huanming Yang is a globally recognized leader in genetic and genomic research. He founded BGI, the largest genomics organization in the world presently, in 1999. Dr. Yang and his collaborators at BGI have made significant contributions to the International Human Genome Project, the International Human HapMap project and the 1000 Genomes Project. In conjunction with its research projects, BGI has established its technical platforms based on large-scale genome sequencing, efficient bioinformatics analyses, and innovative genetic healthcare initiatives.
