Interactive Media Support
Bruno Kruse: For introducing our team to Processing and Unity and helping debug.
Xiaoyue Gong 龚小月: Class of 2017. For her help in many aspects of the IMA development team.
Richard Huang 黄乐玮: Class of 2017. For his help in code troubleshooting.
Aven Zhou 周乐: For his help in using the lasercutter and 3D printers.
Helen Wu: For her help with checking-out equipment and using the lasercutter.
Xiangci, ZZ, Sohigh: Team members most involved in this aspect of the project.
Tristan Armitage: Class of 2018, couldn't be with us in Shanghai, but committed to the team in finishing the wiki. Thanks Tristan!
Ann Yang: Didn't realize a wiki took so much work.
Cambridge University iGEM 2009/2010: We used parts made from Cambridge University iGEM teams (chromoproteins and luciferase) to create the colors in our lab.
Fudan University iGEM 2012: We used their constructs to attempt a light osciillating system.
Fudan University iGEM 2015: When we ran out of luciferase generators, the Fudan team kindly donated to us their iGEM kits. They also helped a lot in teaching us about primer design and creating plasmids that work.
Xi'An Jiaotong Liverpool University 2015: We used their parts to create color in the lab. They literally drove to Shanghai with a box of dry ice and cells already transformed with chromoprotein expressing plasmids. We were blown away by their kindness. Thanks XJTLU!
iGEM Kit: for giving us most of the parts we wanted to work with this summer.
Integrated DNA Technologies: For their gBlocks which provided us our chromoprotein constructs.
Sangon 生工: For sequencing our plasmids and creating our primers.
