A library of videos on synthetic biology, iGEM, and other topics.

  • Here's a video by the 2009 Southampton team that covers what a new team can expect from iGEM. It presents the good ... and the bad. Very informative!
  • You can always tell the strength of an emerging field by the quality of child prodigies that arrive on scene. Check out Gabriel See's work with the Washington University Team to make a LEGO Liquid Handling Robot. It's mind-blowing stuff. There's also a hilarious moment 55 seconds into this Youtube video, when the reporter talks about Gabriel being able to understand "nucleotide sequences ... whatever they are". It made me laugh and cry at the same time.
  • The Cambridge Team won top prize at iGEM 2009. They developed a color pigment generating strain of //E.coli// that was activated by the presence of a variable , and it could even be tuned to different sensitivities of that compound. The team worked with an artistic designer to come up with an interesting future use for their project...
  • This beautifully shot and edited video article centers on the legendary Stanford/MIT professor, Drew Endy.
  • Eric Ma delivers one of the best introductions to our field that I've yet found. He has a real knack for talking in terms anyone can grasp and his passion for iGEM is very infectious. Eric was a member of the 2008 team from the University of British Columbia.
  • This is the first part of a debate between Drew Endy and Jim Thomas on the ethics of synthetic biology. The whole thing is availible at the Long Now Foundation's website. Thought-provoking!
  • Here's the 2008 iGEM competition being covered by PBS's //News Hour//. Quite good for a mainstream media report.
