The project’s timeline

Decided to participate in iGEM and started a team recruiting process
March - May
Conducted meetings with different scientists to find a PI and corporations for money-raising purposes. At the same time, we brainstormed a lot, beginning in March
After successfully finding a PI, developed a plan and schedule for our project
June - August
Started learning wet lab methods of synthetic biology while preparing for our lab work: synthesizing primers and ordering reagents and equipment
Began working in the lab on our project
