You are provided with this team page template with which to start the iGEM season. You may choose to personalize it to fit your team but keep the same "look." Or you may choose to take your team wiki to a different level and design your own wiki with lots of pirate imagery. You can find some examples HERE.
You MUST have a team description page, a project abstract, a complete project description, a lab notebook, and a safety page. PLEASE, for the sake of the science, keep all of your pages within your teams namespace.

The Story so far

(19 June 2010):

Jeremy Nagels, a student at Monash university, Ebony and Symon have begun discussing various project ideas. These include:

Oscillators

The use of the Hydrogenase 3 complex to generate Hydrogen within E Coli as a form of biofuel.

The possibility of biological prevention of tooth decay with biobricks.

The application of biobricks to a mixed cell community.

The development of cell free transcription/ translation within a cellular system, for example the phloem of a plant, (although the development of this level of symbiosis may be the stuff of future projects)

The attempt is being made to develop a project that in some ways reflects these interests and possibly taps a common thread underlying them.

A leading possibility is the creation of a biofilter inspired by the examples of the the Cambridge 2009 biosensor project. The search is on to find which pollutant and which strain/ strains/ species of organisms can be used.
