Recommendations For Our Project:

New Database Language
Demos of Automatic Modeling
Human Practice


To promote public awareness of synthetic biology and introduce its basic ideas to the laymen, our team devoted to the development of an experimental video game which aims at instructing non-biologists to design and improve biological systems. Following the games-with-a-purpose paradigm in which players help solve scientific problems, we attempt to apply the human brain's puzzle-solving abilities to the complex designs of biological systems. While most of developed simulation tools are designed for experts to model the reaction networks from scratch, our game integrates a modeling environment in which users only need to submit their assembling of parts for our program to discover and generate the biological model automatically.

[Intro]   [User Interface]   [MoDeL]   [Algorithm]   [Resources]

A new language called MoDeL (Standard Biological Parts Modeling Database Language) is proposed for automatic modeling of biological systems. Due to introducing of novel concepts of species and reaction templates, which are two main components in MoDeL, interactions between species need not to be completely provided and thus making automation possible.

[Intro]   [Features]   [Standardization]   [Future Work]

To show results of our program, some classical genetic regulatory networks are provided as demos, including toggle switch, repressilator as well as quorum-sensing oscillator. Each selected demo, representing a certain pattern of reaction network in biological process, is carefully designed to cover all our features as much as possible.

Human Practice

We started a long term human practice, "the C project", since this summer to explore the approaches of promotion of synthetic biology. "the C project", as we call, consists of three parts: Curriculum, Communication and Community. All three parts are carefully designed and organized.

[Overview]   [The C Project]   [Safety]

We are a team of both undergraduate and graduate students along with many advisors. This is the second year that USTC has sent a software team to iGEM.
