It’s already the third iGEM competition for me and since it may be the last (as a student), I’m already a bit melancholic. Nevertheless the upcoming “Giant Jamboree” in Boston motivates me even more to put as much effort as possible in our project to make it the best TU Darmstadt iGEM ever!

After my first time in the TU Darmstadt's iGEM team I had a lot of fun and I want to take part also in this year. I like to increas my abilities from last iGEM 2013 and I hope that I can learn new thinks, also from other field of science. I am excited to test my abilities and I hope that the iGEM-Team 2014 is again a pleasant and constructive working group, like last year.

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.

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.

In 2012 I were already of the party with our first participation in the iGEM-competition. It was an unique experience and I had a lot of fun at that time. After my pause in the competition last year, I am now ready to lend a hand again. Until now I've passed my B.Sc. Biomolecular Engineering at the TU Darmstadt and started my master's degree with a specialization in structural biology. So I hope I'll be able to support my team optimally and to contribute it with some useful results in bioinformatics.

Like the last time I am looking forward to the competition and the other participant student-teams. In particular, I am very curious because of the speciality that the whole competition will proceed at the MIT this year.

Zum dritten Mal freue ich mich auf die Teilnahme an einem studentischen Projekt. Im Gegensatz zu regulären Modulen bietet

iGEM mir die Möglichkeit interessante Themen abseits meines Studienganges zu vertiefen und somit mein Wissen in anderen

Bereichen zu erweitern. Ich hoffe auf eine gute Zusammenarbeit mit unserem neuen Team und eine schöne Zeit im Labor.

Hello! My name is Fabian Rohden and I study Biology in the fifth semester. I heard about iGEM from some Biomoleculer Engineering students and really liked the idea of working on an interesting project in addition to the normal university lessons. Through iGEM I hope to learn a lot about synthetic biology and the organization of this kind of projects.

Hi, my name is Benjamin Mayer, I am currently studying at the TU Darmstadt for my bachelor's degree in computer science and my master's degree in physics.

I initially learned about iGEM during my bachelor thesis at the Computational Biology and Simulation group.

As physicist and computer scientist I am equipped with a relatively broad theoretical knowledge from which I want to contribute to the Team, e.g., in the field of modeling.

For me personally iGEM is a chance to work with a large Team, in comparison to the group sizes common for my field of study, on an interesting and multidisciplinary subject.

Thus, through iGEM I can broaden my scope of knowledge and learn new team competences.

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.

Taking part the second time in the TU Darmstadt's iGEM team I'm looking forward to an interesting project period. Both, new experiences and new challenges are on our way on which we provide our personal skills for a freshly planned work. Again, our team members contain students with a variety of knowledge and levels who hopefully will complement and support one another.

Hi! I’m Kai. After finishing my bachelor studies of biophysics in Frankfurt, I switched for my master studies to technical biology to get a focus on biotechnology approaches. I’m looking forward to challenges and having fun during my first time at iGEM.

Participating iGEM the second time i've get once more the bargain being part of this project.

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.
