* '''Team assembly''' <br/> We began assembling our team in January and are holding weekly meetings since then. Most of the people didn't know about iGEM so we presented it in various scientific lectures and told all our friends about it. At the initial meeting we presented the iGEM competition and a few previous iGEM projects. In our following weekly meetings we learned more about iGEM (time schedule, formalities, registration, team composition, finances) and compiled lists of project ideas.

-
* '''Finding support and advisors''' <br/> We presented our team to the head of department Prof. Nordheim (Department of Molecular Biology) where we readily found support and enthusiasm. We then went on to talk to specific specialist faculty members with whom we held multiple conferences dedicated to project idea discussion and elaboration.
