Our Team

In this page we introduce our team members, student leaders, and advisors.

Team TALebots

We are the second iGEM team from the Leibniz University Hanover and got together in September 2015. This year, we are 12 highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students from very different fields of study: Biology, Life Sciences, Plant Biotechnology and even Computer Science. We all share a common interest in synthetic biology and passion for our project. This competition is the perfect opportunity to expand our horizons and use our theoretic knowledge in the lab. Since we have very different fields of study, we had a basic course about TALE proteins and biotechnology itself. Dr. Reinard provided the computer science students with some tutoring in biology.
But let us introduce ourselves:



Our project would not have been possible without financial support from multiple sponsors and supporters.
