This year Harvard's team consisted of 8 undergraduate students, with backgrounds in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and computer science. With the help of 6 faculty advisers and 4 teaching fellows, plus one education advisor, they devised and executed a single project in the area of systems biology with three subsections, which you can find in the "projects" section above.
A basic overview about iGEM Competition:
iGEM is an international arena where student teams compete to design and assemble engineered machines using advanced genetic components and technologies.
Wikipedia defines "synthetic biology" as:
"Synthetic biology aims to create novel biological functions and tools by modifying or integrating well-characterized biological components (i.e. genes, promoters) into higher order genetic networks using mathematical modeling to direct the construction towards the desired end product."
