Our team XMU-Nanobiocat is a group of versatile talents in fields of chemical and biological engineering in Xiamen University. We have eleven undergraduate students, a Ph.D candidate student Yonghui Zhang as the team leader, and Professor Baishan Fang and Shizhen Wang as the project mentors. It is our first time to participate an international competition. We believe our enthusiasm, cooperation, and friendliness toward this project will impress everyone. Hopefully you will feel interested to our topics and results.
