A group of leading energy companies in Alberta are collaborating with the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (University of Calgary) and the School of Energy & The Environment (University of Alberta) on a continued iGEM initiative. Sponsorship is offered in iGEM's "Energy & Environment" track. Teams are invited to submit iGEM project proposals especially in the area of biologically based solutions to improve the environmental sustainability of oil sands bitumen extraction, upgrading and refining, for either in situ or surface mining processes.
Genome Compiler is built on the idea that biology is information technology.
Just like another information technology - computers, genetic engineers also need tools to design, debug and compile their code: A genome compiler. Designed with the iGEM competitors needs in mind, Genome Compiler contains the repository of standard biological parts with a beautiful, easy yet powerful tool for genetic engineers.
Breakout Labs is a revolutionary revolving fund model that is accelerating innovation in science and technology. It provides grants to early stage start up companies to advance their high impact, game-changing ideas. Breakout Labs companies are pioneering progress at the intersection of technology and biology, in cutting–edge platform technologies and pushing boundaries with ideas that are often too bold, and risky for federal grant support.
The Thiel Fellowship is a radical re-thinking of what it takes to succeed. It encourages lifelong learning and independent thought. With $100,000 and 2 years free to pursue their dreams, Thiel Fellows are changing the world. Breakout Labs and the Thiel Fellowship are projects of the Thiel Foundation.
The Thiel Foundation defends and promotes freedom in all its dimensions: political, personal, and economic.
