M. Sc. Johari Salgado

Johari selflessly shared his laboratory with us and was always willing to help us get material and equipment.

Felipe López

He instructed us on how to use the microplate reader for the characterization of our parts.

Collaboration with other iGEM Teams

We contributed with other universities by participating on their surveys; unfortunately we weren’t able to answer all of them, but we tried to have an active contribution.
We contacted and befriended the two other Mexican teams (Mexico-UNAM-CINVESTAV and UNAM-Genomics_Mexico) in order to start an open collaboration in our country. We exchanged points of view regarding the Mexican Customs problems and some of their advice was taken into account when writing the Importation Manual.
We used some of the BioBricks submitted by the 2009 British Columbia team (pBAD, pBAD weak, pBAD strong), proved their correct function and re-characterized their pBAD BioBrick.

TU Delft

We would like to thank them, as we used part of their Wiki Code.
