I am a second year Computer Scientist and my key role is part of the computer modelling team.
Why iGEM? The DNA-as-programming-language concept of synthetic biology appeals to me both as a computer scientist and as a former A-level Biology student - I think it's an area with massive potential and I can't wait to see what the future holds for for SynBio!
Philipp Boeing Philipp Boeing
I'm a second year Computer Science student. I helped recruiting the team and my main job is making sure we go as far as we can.
Why iGEM: I'm very excited by the potential of synthetic biology and I think iGEM is a particularly exciting project, because of its diversity.

I am a third year Biochemical Engineer and my key role is part of the computer modelling team. In particular I am working on MATLAB, and modelling of the plastic in the ocean.
Why iGEM: iGEM is a good introduction to synthetic biology and I feel that synthetic biology will play a large role in the future due to its large potential for application in many fields, particularly medicine.
James Rutley James Rutley
I am in year 5 and I am studying MEng Biochemical Engineering with Extra Mural Year. My role within the team is to ensure focus on key targets and deliverables, acting between different groups to ensure that these are achieved, as well as getting hands on in the lab.
Why iGEM? : Synthetic Biology is an exciting field showing a lot of promise, and iGEM appeals to me as a fascinating way of working as part of a very interdisciplinary team in this field and within a competitive environment.

I am a third year Medic with an iBSC in Genetics, and my key role in iGEM is coordinating the wiki, and carrying out the lab work.
Why iGEM? As Synthetic Biology is a relatively young area of science, I feel there is a lot of unexplored territory to investigate, and that makes iGEM a particularly pioneering, exciting, and challenging research opportunity. 
Aurelija Grigonyte Aurelija Grigonyte
I am a first year Biochemist, and my key role is in coordinating the design of our Poster, and in the characterisation and construction of Biobricks
Why iGEM? iGEM combines both new field of synthetic biology as well as interdisciplinary research which I am interested in.
