Experiment Module

In order to complete our experiment, most of the team participated in the experimental work. Huang Yan designed and conceived the whole experiment, and Dan Hong, Siyang, Yuxiang, Jinyan and Zixin all participated in the experiment. From the key therapeutic targets and target genes of IBD to the subsequent experiments to verify the characterization results, all the experimental group members participated in the gene expression verification experiment in bacteria. Ruiyue designed and completed the hardware experiment. Yifan also designed and completed the characterization of bacteria in the cell experiment, Danhong is also involved. The experiment obtained many effective results under their efforts!

Human Practice Module

Yifan was the first to give the whole outline of HP, and Siyang, Ruiyue and Liao Yi were also involved. In order to build a platform for iGEMers to communicate with each other, Siyang, Yifan, Ruiyue and other team members jointly organized the 5th South China Exchange And Intestinal Conference. Liao Yi organized several community intestinal knowledge popularization activities and education activities for the whole population, as well as interviews with professionals related to enteritis treatment. Meanwhile, she was responsible for photography work in various activities together with Yuxiang. Xiaojun designed and produced the game and cards of "Synthesizing Large Protein", and completed our intestinal brochure together with Liao Yi and Ruiyue. Thanks to them, our human practice has many more highlights under the premise of successful completion.


In order to predict the expression effect of the components and the final working efficiency of the suicide switch, Fanyu and He Shan constructed a variety of mathematical models, combined with the effective data obtained in the experiment, to achieve scientific prediction results. At the same time, they also designed a model that can be used to analyze patients' symptoms in the mini-program that we will launch in the future.
