Tec de Monterrey


José Argüelles

He investigated theoretical information for the project, made general laboratory work and made the synthesis design. He was committed to finish the final construct.

Pamela Campos

She was in charge of managing the material at the laboratory. She helped with general lab work. She also contributed by writing the Importationg Manual and by going to the government offices to request information about the permits we needed in order to import our DNA synthesis.

Cristóbal Cevallos

He looked for sponsors, made a fund rising party and was in charge of the trip logistics to Boston. He worked on general laboratory work and with the characterizations of pBAD, MuC and MuMor.

Jan Contreras

He helped with general laboratory work, contributed in the design of the final construct and the sensitivity tuner. He did the mathematical modelling and characterization of pBAD, MuC and MuMor sensitivity tuners and participated also in the registration of the BioBricks.

Héctor Gálvez

He took the leadership of the group and helped to organize the work to be done by defining specific roles, so that every team member would take responsibility on its own task. He also contributed with the logistic of the project and made the calendar in order to achieve all our goals. The project summary was written by him and he also organized all the information and documentation for the wiki. During the summer he helped in general lab work and contacted the government for sponsorship.

Andrés Huerta

He was in charge of the design and codification of the team wiki, the T-shirts and the poster. He made general laboratory work and helped in the DNA importation process.

Tatiana Núñez

She was in charge of the administration of chemical reactants, general laboratory work, and customs information of the DNA importation. She did the registration and submission of DNA Biobricks.

Diana Ostos

Diana contributed with the logistics on the project related with the university and also facilitated the synthesis payment from some parts we need to complete our project. She worked at general laboratory work and helped with the customs procedures. She worked on the development of the sensitivity tuner of Mu bacteriophage with protein C and the design of the final construct.

Javier Reynoso

He looked for sponsors and helped with general laboratory work.

Flavio Siller

He helped with general lab work. He designed a program to calculate the amount of enzymes for our digestions and also for the ligation reactions.


Dr. Mario Álvarez

He was the first one to believe in the project and to give us support by suggesting ideas for different applications for the sensor.

M. Sc. Sergio García

He helped us by teaching the protocols and procedures we needed in the laboratory practices. He contributed by giving us different perspectives in troubleshooting. Sergio always supported us with lab material and disposition of equipment and was incredibly patient with us.


Dr. Manuel Zertuche

He was the one who principally financiered and helped us with the organization plan and the timeline in order to achieve the short and long term goals in this project. He provided us with the facilities and gave us his approval to almost everything we asked for. We really want to give special thanks to him because of the advices and support that he gave us along this time, but above all for having believed in us.

M. Sc. José Manuel Aguilar

He helped us with the theoretical information and developed with us the idea of the intelligent biosensor

M. Sc. Johari Salgado

He shared with us the laboratory and provided us with material and equipment for the laboratory practices.

Felipe López

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

Other iGEM Teams

We contributed with other universities by participating on the surveys they sent to us; unfortunately we couldn’t answer to all of them, but we tried to have an active contribution in order to help them in their duty.

TU Delft

We didn’t have a proper collaboration with them, but we took part of their code from their Wiki, so we would like to thank them!
