With NTU, Singapore
On 30 August 2021 we had an online conference exchange with Nanyang Technological University from Singapore.The online meeting exchanged the progress and objectives of the project of both sides. GXU-China also learned a lot of experimental knowledge from the exchange meeting, such as CRISPR/Cas9 technology and loop-mediated isothermal amplification technology.At the same time, both NTU and GXU-China experiments are associated with novel coronavirus, so the main purpose of our communication is to seek technical support from each other's experiments and experimental help.After consultation between the two sides, we decided to help NTU conduct a questionnaire survey against new coronavirus patients and cancer patients in China, but the interview with COVID-19 patients was not conducted due to safety concerns.
GXU-China held online exchanges with Jiangnan_China on August 14,2021.Jiangnan_China and us gave mutual introductions of the project. Jiangnan_China gave us very informative help, including medal criteria, HP sessions as well as wiki editing.From this online conference, we learned that Jiangnan_China has carried out many actions in the environment, education, social investigation, etc.They also ask us to help contact teachers of Guangxi University to help with their experiments.Unfortunately, the two teams have failed to communicate offline due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
IGEM China Community
In addition, GXU-China joined IGEM China Community, to get a lot of information as well as answering questions from other teams.Unable to participate in the CCIC's offline COVID-19 exchange conference.And we still participate in the OUC-Chin online workshop. On new contaminantsIn addition, we participated in the synthetic biology art exhibition held by CPU_CHINA, which focuses on environmental protection with the use of synthetic biology, as well as the mapping of the art.By participating in this type of synthetic biology exhibitions, academic reports, lectures, etc.We GXU-China have obtained many recent research advances in synthetic biology that will greatly help the advancement of our project.If possible, our team can also organize corresponding offline exchange meetings or invite experts in synthetic biology for academic reports in the future to provide more feasible ideas and methods for other igem teams.
