Sincere and special thanks to venerable back-ups

Primary PI

Dr. Guoxia Han gave us alerting suggestion on scientific research and made his best to ensure us go ahead bravely. He also spent effort in quality control for every work we did. He would also accompany us to the giant jamboree and take care of us in the U.S.

Dr. David Chiu first prepared extra classes to help us understand more about synthetic biology techniques and lab safety. He gave us constant advice and knowledge in project determination and data analyses. Moreover, lots of project logic lines and explanations were examined by him.

Secondary PI

Prof. Dechang Xu supported us by listening to all our concerns and encouraging us to find solutions. He also advised us on our modelling strategies and helped us to establish connections with many of our sponsors and collaborators both inside and outside school.


Mr. Yunpeng Zhong offered additional training in gene syntheses for the junior members in winter. During project decisions, he provided an idea and came up a lot of advice regarding an iGEM project. Besides, he also sponsored oligos for gene synthesis.

University Technicians

Mr. Zhongkai Huang and Ms. Sijing Meng supervised us in the lab all along. They spent huge efforts in lab materials preparation which rid much inconvenience of us.

Professors From Other Departments

Dr. Jia Meng supported a fund for our project running.

External supports


1. Snapgene sponsored 10 software licenses

10. Dr. Tianma Yuan, from Department of Biological Sciences, XJTLU

Other Teams

NJU-China team supported us in exosome quantification by Pierce BCA Protein Assay and Nanoparticle Tracking Assay. Additionally they provided us 1ml Dil dye for our neuron targeting experiment for free.
NAU-China team helped us in modeling at the early team developmental stage.
LZU team supported us a plasmid construct.
Jiangnan iGEM team help us in some art design of human practice webpage

Special thanks to the ones who helped us in Human Practices
