Engineering Success

“The key to success is to focus on goals, not obstacles”

As with any other iGEM team, we ran into several challenges during the development of our project. These problems were solved by following the design cycle: Design, Build, Test, and Learn. As a result, we were able to achieve success by developing bacteria that included our biological system, building a kinetic model, developing new parts, and contributing to existing parts from the iGEM registry. Below, we will elaborate in more detail on three components of our project where we achieved success by implementing the design cycle.
