Computational Modelling for the IGEM Competition

Course No: 18-kp-2100-se

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (IGEM) competition is a yearly international student competition in the domain of synthetic biology, initiated and hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA since 2004. In the past years teams from TU Darmstadt participated and were very successfully in the competition. This seminar provides training for students and prospective IGEM team members in the domain of computational modeling of biomolecular circuits. The seminar aims at computationally inclined students from all background, but in particular from electrical engineering, computer science, physics and mathematics. Seminar participants that are interested to become IGEM team members could later team up with biologists and biochemists for the 2017 IGEM project of TU Darmstadt and be responsible for the computational modeling part of the project.

The seminar will cover basic modeling approaches but will focus on discussing and presenting recent high-impact synthetic biology research results and past IGEM projects in the domain of computational modeling.

iGEM – Synthetic Biology
