2007 Virginia Genetically Engineered Machine Team
Welcome to the 2007 VGEM Team's OpenWetWare wiki. This wiki contains the internal workings of our team, including our online lab notebook, project designs and other useful information. 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. Check on our official iGEM wiki for our final project description and our external website for more information about the team.
