Page where we should discuss ideas about the Jamboree presentation.
And also where you should post draft versions to be reviewed.

General: The Jamboree Presentation

  • The presentations will be the same duration as last year:
    • 20 minutes presentation
    • 5 minutes questions
    • 5 minutes to change to the next team


Possible format to the presentation:

  • Introduction
    • What is an oscillator?
    • What is the motivation behind a biological oscillator?
    • What has been done in the past? - but of course not to step on anyone's toes
  • Design
    • How our design is different to previous designs (MIT & Repressilator)
    • The funky stuff we though of to control our oscillator, including the riboswitch, Cre/Lox system, chemostat
    • Our quest for the holy AiiA...and Vincent's chemostat
  • Modelling
    • Our mathematical models for the entire system
    • I don't think we need to go into detail about the models for the individual testing constructs..we can just say that we obtained the values...as like MIT did in their 2004 IAP presentation
  • Results/Implementation
    • After all that testing, the results we obtained from our testing constructs
    • Did our final assembly work in the end? if not, can we explain our errors?
    • Video of working system? or at least a nice animation of what it is supposed to look like?
  • Conclusion
    • What have we learned to do and not to do with synthetic biology?
    • Is synthetic biology worth pursuing in the future?
    • Future developments with our biological oscillator
    • Analysis of our project, suggestions for future iGEM teams wishing to tackle the problem of the biological oscillator.
  • Any other suggestions?

Draft Versions

  • Cambridge presentation (july 2006)[1]
