THE TEAM includes a mix of complementary expertise. In the end the work was naturally split between the members. Below each member of the efficient team is linked to their identifying tasks.
Xiangyu Li was responsible for the whole experiment. He performed cloning, BioBrick construction and validation of the constructed parts. Xiangyu also coordinated our collaboration with team Nanjing-China and CPU_CHINA.
Qingxin Shi was responsible for the construction of the first plasmid. He assembled the reporter plasmid and the corresponding biobricks. Qingxin is also in charge of handing all files submission online.
Yunfeiyang Li did all work on coding wiki design into HTML and CSS. Throughout the project he provided supportive models for us.
Zhaoyang Xiang is a student at the Faculty of Medicine. He brought to the group a wealth of information regarding medical practice. In the lab he started off with the Interlab study and then played an integral role in Human Practice having an interesting science class.
Jiaqi Xiao is a student at the Faculty of Medicine. Early on she helped with the Interlab study. Subsequently she played a supportive roles in Human Practice.
Jiamiao Liu was responsible for Human Practice . She organized several fantastic activities to expand the influence of our project to societies.
