Traditionally, we presented our project at the Giant Jamboree in Boston. It was a lot of fun to meet all the other iGEM teams and to talk and discuss with like-minded people. We loved watching the other team's presentations and listening to their detailed explanations at their posters. Thereby, we realised once again how broad the field of Synthetic Biology is and how big of an impact this field already is and how it will be even bigger in the future. With our presentation, poster and a booth at the Exhibition Space we showed what we were able to achieve in the last year.
Our presentation was one of the first on the first day. The room was so crowded, people were even standing in the doorway to watch our presentation! Here you have the possibility to see the presentation of our team at the Giant Jamboree.
Afterwards, most of the time we had to stay with three or more people near our poster, because so many people were interested in our project. Additionally, Keoni Gandall and Kristin Ellis paid us a visit at our Exhibition Space booth. They were really impressed by our custom-made hardware.
Kristin was so happy about our work on the OT-2 Colony Picker Unit that she invited us to their company headquarters in New York City! When we went to Opentrons in New York City Kristin showed us their offices and labs, explained us how they work at Opentrons and we presented our Colony Picker Unit to several staff members, sharing our thoughts and ideas.
Working independently and in collaborations on our own project, joining the Giant Jamboree together as a team and getting in touch with all these different, amazing people meant a lot to us and we are really thankful to have made these experiences! Finally we want to thank everybody who helped us gain a silver medal in this awesome competition! We are happy for this amazing time and to be a part of this great community!
