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 <a href="http://2008.igem.org/Help:Template/Examples">HERE</a>.

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.

Melbourne, Australia

There is a lot to love about Melbourne. This sophisticated world city is in the south-eastern corner of mainland Australia.

Melbourne is very much about lifestyle. It is no huge surprise to residents that their city has been ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities.

Melbournians love the city's vibrant energy, restaurants, fashion boutiques, café-filled laneways, cool bars, unbeatable galleries, spacious parks and village-like inner suburbs, each with its own special character.

Melbourne is less than 200 years old and never sits still. Modern, cutting-edge designs add to the fascinating mix of heritage architecture and ensure the skyline is constantly changing.
