This is a template page. READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
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, which is much more fun to do. AAARGGH me hearties...!
You MUST have a team description page, a project abstract, a complete project description, a lab notebook, and a safety page. PLEASE, keep all of your pages within your teams namespace. Arrrtrrrr! Treasure!!!

Who are we???


  • Leonard Pattenden
  • Florencia Camus


  • Symon Smith: Studying biotechnology. Interests outside of science include architecture, music and reading. I hope to one day apply science to the creation of novelty pets, such as tabletop elephants, or glow in the dark cats, while saving the world with synthetic biology.
  • Ebony Perkins: Studying biotechnology. Other interests include theatre, travelling and animals.
  • Sebastian Ramov: Loves iGEM
  • Jeremy Nagels: Loves patent law :-)

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:


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.

  (22th June:)

Inviting all-comers to edit- edit- edit! Symon and Ebony working on designing primers while the team gathers from all corners of the nation, like a crew of pirates AaaaRRRRRMIT!

(25th June):

While Len raids the isle once known as Formosa Symon is raiding the archives of igem for treasure chests (plasmid backbones) for a mission, secret as of yet, Now there be four students aboard ye ship.
