Today is July 13 year 2020.

Baltimore-US, is made up of hobbyists, faculty and students from area universities including Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), Loyola (LU) and Towson (TU) Universities. We have assembled a team of professional and amateur scientists/engineers/artists to put forth a team for this years iGEM 2010 competition.

As discussion amongst the other open-science enthusiasts, we worked with the Community College of Baltimore County and Professor Tom Burkett, Ph.D. to create a venue where folks could step into this competition and learn with hands on experience the tools, techniques, and resources necessary to explore this emerging field under the observance of trained professionals. Faculty Instructors and Advisors are Tom Burkett, Assistant Professor of Biology & Biotechnology at CCBC, Lisa Scheifele, Assistant Professor of Biology at Loyola College, and Elizabeth Goode, Associate Professor of Mathematics at Towson University.
Our members range in age and we're made up of graduates, students, professors of HCC, CCBC, JHU, Georgetown, Towson and Loyola University. We've got biological and electrical engineers, computer scientists and computer programmers. Curious novices and academics, we've come together with enthusiasm to try and see what we might be able to accomplish with these new technologies.

Regardless of what we create, we hope to document the experiences and frustrations in hopes of making the field more accessible to other Sythetic Biology enthusiasts and students, creating additional media and educational tools along the way.
