2007 Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine (VGEM) Team
Welcome to the Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine (VGEM) Team's wiki! The VGEM Team is an undergraduate research group interested in synthetic biology and biological engineering, and will compete in MIT's 2007 international Genetically Engineered Machines competition (iGEM) in November. We'll be adding new information regularly, so be sure to check up on us soon. - George McArthur

We have three (top secret) medically-related projects. More details will be available soon. Our group is also interested in environmental biological engineering and we'll be pursuing additional projects throughout the summer.
During our weekly meetings throughout the spring semester, we'll be discussing relevant literature and developing project ideas. Our actual experiments will occur during the summer session, and we hope to have our results in order by the beginning of the fall semester in September.
