    OUC-China iGEM, a student team representing Ocean University of China (OUC), was awarded the gold medal at the International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (iGEM) Asia held at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The OUC team was also entitled to advance to the World Championship to be held at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the U.S. in November, 2012. 【点击查看中文版

    Composed of 14 undergraduate students from five different colleges, the OUC team also claimed two of the nine single prizes, namely, the Best Model, Asia and the Best Experimental Measurement Approach, Asia.    

     As one of the top-level international scientific and technological competitions, iGEM attracts over a hundred teams from renowned institutions of higher learning from home and abroad each year. In 2012, a total of 194 teams from over 40 countries all over the world participated in iGEM, including teams from such top universities as MIT, Harvard, Cambridge, Berkeley, and Stanford.

    The Asian region was represented by 57 teams, among them are student teams from China’s prestigious institutions of higher learning including Peking University, Tsinghua University, University of Science and Technology of China, Zhejiang University, Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Wuhan University and Tianjin University.

    Focusing on the topic of Oceanfloat and Oceanfell -A Floating Biosensor, the  OUC team, supported by the Innovation Lab of Experimental Teaching Center for Marine Life Sciences, concentrated their efforts on how to sense the content of nitrogen and phosphorus in the water body using colon bacillus as the biosensor, so as to monitor the occurrence of algal bloom.


    Established in November 2011, the iGEM team representing OUC in 2012 is comprised of undergraduate students including Kangli (as the team leader), Zhang Peiran, Gong Minghao, Lai Weihong, Wang Tianhe, Li Jiaheng, Peng Yong, and Zhang Chunyan from College of Marine Life Science, Chang Lei from College of Fisheries, Wu Wenjie and Yang Zhongzhou from School of Medicine and Pharmaceutics, Li Lian and Bao Yingying from College of Information Science and Engineering, and Xu Haowen from College of Mathematical Sciences. Professor Zhao Xiaohua worked with the team as their adviser.

    Initiated at MIT in 2003, iGEM is a worldwide synthetic biology competition  aimed at undergraduate university students. Student teams are given a kit of biological parts at the beginning of the summer from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Working at their own schools over the summer, they use these parts and new parts of their own design to build biological systems and operate them in living cells. 

    The student team representing OUC in 2011 won a bronze medal in the iGEM.
