QHFZ-China is a progressive iGEM team assembled by students from Tsinghua University High School who are interested in synthetic biology . Despite the differences in age and characteristics, we share the love for biology and the iGEM competition. Together, we seek the ideal of contributing to our society and expressing the truths of science. With the help of partnerships, team work, active participation, and passion, we believe that we will overcome challenges in our project and within ourselves to enjoy the iGEM tournament. You can connect us via email (igemqhfzchina AT gmail DOT com) or Facebook.
In the iGEM competition, there are many teams that designed engineered bacteria with various functions. To optimize the storage environments of these bacteria and help them elaborate their functions in daily lives, we used lyophilization to attain room temperature storage. Transferring the TDPs (Tardigrade disordered protein) offer the engineered bacteria better protectants and guarantee the survival rate of them. Through these applications, we developed a new storage method not only for the daily usages of people, but also for future iGEM teams to store and apply their engineering bacteria in different practices.
