Welcome to HKUSTers team Wiki for iGEM 2008

  • iGEM is the international genetically engineered machines competition.
  • The objective of the competition is to design and build an engineered biological system using DNA.
  • To see examples of the amazing possibilities of iGEM, check out last years iGEM page


Randomizer Part started.

Project Description

The HKUSTers’ project is composed of three components; (1) a Randomizer with one of the two possible random outputs at a single cell level, (2) a Memorizer that specifically records the last input and compares it with the current input to give out an XOR calculation, while the input before the last is erased, and (3) a Spatial Oscillator that facilitates autonomous back and forth migration of cells responding to two opposing chemical gradients...
