iGEM google hangout

Things have been quiet here recently, partly due to paper writing but also supervision the University’s first iGEM team – have I mentioned their blog and wiki? Here’s a advertisement for the upcoming UK iGEM meet-up. This is due to be streamed live from Google campus in London. So if you can’t make it, you can still find out what is going on.

Hangout with the UK iGEM Synthetic Biology Teams at Google Campus London

Synthetic Biology is a rapidly growing scientific field in which living organisms and systems are bespoke engineered to create novel materials, fuels, medicines and bio-computational systems. The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition, organised by MIT, USA is the world’s largest Synthetic Biology competition. The competition was created to inspire interdisciplinary research teams to create the biological and software technologies needed to develop this rapidly growing field.

Join us as we hangout at Google Campus for a day of inspiring presentations, which celebrate the innovative ideas that are emerging from the UK’s premier Synthetic Biology research groups. Our hangout will be broadcast through Google+ Events and Google Hangouts.

Date: 17th August 9:30am – 6pm
Venue: Google Campus London

Thanks to Richard Kelwick for organising this.

I hope to post some more information on here soon regarding Exeter iGEM’s human practises panel discussion, which I believe is also supposed to be open access. At any event, the plan is to record it and make it available through the teams wiki.
