We have reached out to the HKUST team and set up a physical meeting in the HKUST campus in order to know
more about each other’s projects. Later, on 11 Aug 2021, we were invited to take part in the HK symposium
2021 held by the HKUST team and got the chance to listen to other Hong Kong iGEM teams’ projects. Due to
HKUST’s vast experience in participating in the iGEM competition, we have also sent our chimeric protein,
PETase-MHETase and protein extraction protocol to HKUST and let them test our protocol to see if our
protocol works and minimize the errors in our lab work.
We have had an online meeting with the Stony_Brook iGEM team and have been in touch with their team
throughout the summer of 2021. In our meeting, they have addressed their idea of conducting a survey. In
response to that, we have summarised our experience in setting up a survey and analyzing the survey
We then sent the Stony Brook team a document explaining the protocols of making a survey.
We have filmed a short video for the Saint_Joseph team sharing the reasons why we participated in the
competition and our favorite thing about iGEM. This video is a part of their video compilation.
We had a physical meetup with the Hong_Kong_HKU team to share our project elements and discuss any
plans. They also suggested a few biotechnology companies that we can reach out to for implementation.
We participated in the High School iGEM symposium held by the Hong_Kong_ JSS team on 16 Oct 2021. We got
learn more about other high school teams’ work and share our experiences with others.
The Istanbul_Tech team invited us to participate in their ethics module in which our members completed
and discussions related to the ethical perspectives of ours and others’ projects and research.
The MTU team invited us to take part in “The Martina Project” where we customize our own blank Martina.
have incorporated our project aim and logo into our Martina and the MTU team made all the received
