Welcome to HUBU-iGEM 2018!

Before you start

Please read the following pages:

Project Description

Our project focuses on environmental protection and energy production. We will make use of the waste paper resources on campus for biofuel production. We will evaluate and identify an optimized pretreatment method to convert waste paper into sugars of glucose and xylose. At the same time, we will synthesize and combine genes and promoters to drive carbon flux from ethanol production into isobutanol production in Zymomonas mobilis, which will be further tested and optimized as a general isobutanol-production module suitable for other chasses. We will improve the isobutanol tolerance of Zymomonas mobilis through mutagenesis and metabolic engineering approaches to increase the isobutanol titer and productivity.

Uploading pictures and files

You must upload any pictures and files to the iGEM 2018 server. Remember to keep all your pictures and files within your team's namespace or at least include your team's name in the file name.

When you upload, set the "Destination Filename" to T--YourOfficialTeamName--NameOfFile.jpg. (If you don't do this, someone else might upload a different file with the same "Destination Filename", and your file would be erased!)

Wiki template information

We have created these wiki template pages to help you get started and to help you think about how your team will be evaluated. You can find a list of all the pages tied to awards here at the Pages for awards link. You must edit these pages to be evaluated for medals and awards, but ultimately the design, layout, style and all other elements of your team wiki is up to you!

Editing your wiki

On this page you can document your project, introduce your team members, document your progress and share your iGEM experience with the rest of the world!

Use WikiTools - Edit in the black menu bar to edit this page

Tips

This wiki will be your team’s first interaction with the rest of the world, so here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • State your accomplishments! Tell people what you have achieved from the start.
  • Be clear about what you are doing and how you plan to do this.
  • You have a global audience! Consider the different backgrounds that your users come from.
  • Make sure information is easy to find; nothing should be more than 3 clicks away.
  • Avoid using very small fonts and low contrast colors; information should be easy to read.
  • Start documenting your project as early as possible; don’t leave anything to the last minute before the Wiki Freeze. For a complete list of deadlines visit the iGEM 2018 calendar
  • Have lots of fun!
