Advisors from SJTU-BioX-Shanghai (2020)

Keyi Li

Keyi Li is the student leader of SJTU-BioX-Shanghai (2020), who introduce iGEM competition to us and recruited the members of SJTU-BioX-Shanghai (2021). She helped us to understand the iGEM competition system and provided many significant suggestions about project design, trouble shooting and time management.

Chenxu Feng

Chenxu Feng is the wet lab leader of SJTU-BioX-Shanghai (2020). He not only helped us to be familiar with the conventional wet lab operation but else shared the precious experience of lab work management with us. He designed the overlap PCR protocol for T7 transcription template preparation.

Jiangying Liu

Jiangying Liu is a member of SJTU-BioX-Shanghai (2020) wet lab. He provided suggestions about molecular cloning experiment and PCR reaction.

Special acknowledgement for Dr. Joy S. Xiang from Stanford University!

Dr. Joy is one of the primary authors of A multiplexed, automated evolution pipeline enables scalable discovery and characterization of biosensors, in which she reported the design of DRIVER system and the aptazyme named Gard-337. Her previous work set the foundation of our work, and it`s her generous help that make it possible for us to go through such a complex process in our project.
