Who Are We?
Nanjing-China is an innovative and enterprising team with 18 members from school of life science and school of chemistry and chemical engineering of Nanjing University. The team originated from the scientific research and innovation training for undergraduates majoring in life sciences in Nanjing University. With long-term experience, the team participated in the world's top synthetic biology competition, the international genetic engineering machine competition Competition (iGEM), to complete scientific research projects in fields of energy, environmental protection, medical biotechnology and other new applications, consequently improving the comprehensive practical ability of undergraduates and realizing the goal of personalized training.

What Is Our Project Like?
There are many problems with synthetic chemical materials, such as the contamination and safety risks in production process. By means of Synthetic Biology, Nanjing-China team hopes to biohybrid organic and inorganic materials to obtain a novel biosynthesis material with both stable physical property and certain fuctions. Polyphosphate as inorganic choice, is well known for its excelling thermal stability. We hope to hybrid it with biomacromolecules like proteins to create a new material, which not only maintains the original function of protein but also improves its thermal stability.
