Since last year I want to be part of the iGem-team, now in the 4. semester I have time for this challange. I am responsible for the sponsoring of our team. I hope this projekt give me the chance to learn new laborpractice and improve my softskills. iGem give me the opportunity to see the activity of synthetic biologie, because I want to write my bachelor thesis in this field of science.

I am very greatful to be a part of that awesome team.

In 2010 Sascha completed his education to a stated recognized biological technical assistant. This education motivated him so much that he strove for studies in the biological sciences. He has already studied bimolecular engineering at the technical university Darmstadt for 4 semesters now. For the first time Sascha became aware of the iGEM competition in 2009. He was filled with enthusiasm by the basic idea of the competition. Since then he wanted to join the contest.

Sascha take responsibility for the metabolic engineering during our project. He expects an interesting summer. Moreover, he hopes to learn many new things about synthetic biology. Besides a successful participation Sascha wants to establish many international contacts.

I was asked to support the current iGEM-Team. In particular, the interdisciplinary direction and the fascinating possibilities that these technologies offer, appeal to me. This allows me to apply my acquired skills within this pratice oriented project and gain a number of new experiences.

In my current studies I concentrate on the field of IT Security. Since I develop an Android interface and cooperate closely with the area of electrical engineering, this project unfortunatly does not offer any connections to my area of expertise.

I watched with interest the progression of last year’s TU Darmstadt iGEM-Team but could not participate due to time reasons. This year I would not want to miss working in the project since I want to apply and extend my experience in scientific research. In the course of my previous studies, I mainly specialized in research with mammalian cells but see great importance in having a deep insight in other and novel fields such as the manipulation of bacteria and the transfer to a engineering approach.

Most of all, I am glad about how our student team works together in spite having diverse knowledge in both different fields and different levels. We complement and bring forward one another and I am looking forward coming across new experiences as well as challenges which make me also curious about how we are going to master them.

Hi!

My name is Dicky and I study Molecular Biomedical Sciences in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in Hong Kong. Luckily, I exchange to TU Darmstadt and join the iGEM team this semester. I have some research and iGEM experiences in Hong Kong. But joining iGEM in Germany is still a challenge for me because I am the only one who cannot speak German, hopefully my teammates change their language to English. Many thanks about this. I hope I can learn a lot from them.

In the first place, I learned about iGEM more or less coincidently but I soon figured out that this is a project I definitely want to be part of. The contest offers the unique opportunity to carry out research in a practically oriented manner and to meet scientific challenges as a team. Therefore, iGEM presents an outstanding occasion to gain new valuable experiences and to further develop my personal and scientific skills.

I hope that we as a project team will be successful in finding solid solutions to the problems we will be confronted with and I am highly motivated to make my personal contribution to iGEM.

Some friends of mine asked me if I want to join them and participate at this years iGEM-team of the TU Darmstadt. I really like working in a team and especially indepentently finding a solution to a challenging problem is great task. The interdisciplinary composition of our team offers me the opportunity to use my skills I already learnd during my studies at the university and to gain further knowledge in a broad scientific field.

Currently I am studying in the senior semester of my Bachelor degree, my specialisation is commmunications engineering.

In this year's iGEM-project I am responsible for the electrical engineering part. Mainly this means I have to construct a cheap and reliable sensor to detect fluoresce. Furthermore I have to find a secure way for the data transmission between our developed device and a modern cellular phone.

Obwohl ich erst im 4. Semester studiere, bin ich der Meinung das iGEM eine super Möglichkeit ist, schon jetzt seinen Blick für spätere Tätigkeiten zu schulen, mit anderen Leuten zusammen zu arbeiten und gemeinsam etwas Tolles zu erschaffen. Besonders schön finde ich dabei, als Team voneinander zu lernen und mit viel Eigeninitiative und Kreativität an der Uni wissenschaftlich zu arbeiten.

Ich studiere Biomolecular Engineering und nehme am diesjährigen igem-Team der TU-Darmstadt teil, weil es mir gefällt, in Teamarbeit einen komplexen Sachverhalt zu bearbeiten. Igem bietet die Möglichkeit bereits im Studium selbstständig an einem interdisziplinären Thema zu forschen und wertvolle Erfahrungen zu sammeln.

About iGEM I was told by some fellow students and I was immediately excited. I always wanted to solve practical problems and I am convinced about the potential of synthetic biology to make the world a better place. If we succeed in creating something meaningful and learn a bit, then I'll be pleased.

Anne Schieferdecker

Hey, my name is Anne Schieferdecker and I am a student of the bachelor program Biomolecular Engineering at the TU Darmstadt.

When I first heard about the 2012's iGEM project of our University, it was already too late to enter, but I knew that I will not miss the next project! The possibility to actively shape all aspects of a research project from conception through laboratory work and final presentation, is my primary motivation to participate. I also love challenges and look forward to every pebble along our way and the creative search for solutions by our fortunately heterogeneous team. Privately, I not only hope for fun and accumulating knowledge but also to develop in person.

Hey Guys, my name is Arne! Currently i am finishing my B.Sc. in Biomolecular Engineering at the TU Darmstadt. With some friends I already started our university's first iGEM Team in 2012. Hence, I hope that our experiences will help us to get this year's competition done even better than before.

I am in charge of oraganization and team management so I am some kind of a maid-of-all-work, if you want to put it like that.

I think that our team for 2013 is just great and fortunatelly we are quite interdisciplinaric, so I hope we learn a lot from each other and be successfull during the following months full of working!

See you at the jamborees!
