Who we are
The people behind the iGEM team Tuebingen.
We are the iGEM-Team Tübingen 2021, a group of 16 students spanning diverse fields from biochemistry, bioinformatics, biology through mathematics, up to rhetoric and media studies. With our diverse and interdisciplinary team, we plan to pursue an interesting and forward-looking research project with local and global relevance. The expertise of our competent subteams and past experiences from former projects combined with great motivation and the support of research groups as well as companies will help us to achieve our goal of a successful project. Thereby, the safety of genetically modified systems and their risk-free use in environmental, agricultural, or clinical applications is of great importance for us. With this year’s project we do not only aim at winning one of the prices at the ‘Giant Jamboree’-conference in October, but also strive to contribute to the progress and development in synthetic biology.
