Manqing Peng

Hello! I am Manqing Peng, a student from Guangdong Experimental High School. As I have great interest and enthusiasm in biology, and hope to acquire more knowledge about synthetic biology and improve my skills, I take part in the iGEM. I take charge of the experiment parts, writing parts and speech parts in our team. Working with other excellent members in the team, I not only learned a lot about laboratory and synthetic biology, but also experienced the power of teamwork. It was so amazing that iGEM has become an unforgettable experience in my life.

Anqi Cheng

Hi, everyone! My name is Anqi Cheng, a team member in both modeling and experiment parts. I take part in the iGEM team of my high school, which is called Guangdong Experimental High School. Guangdong Experimental High School, where I am studying in for more than four years, is a comprehensive high school which has great opportunities for students. It is my great pleasure to obtain the chance to be a team member of GDSYZX--United, owing to my strong curiosity in biology field as well as my burning desire to modeling and synthetic biology. I joined in thorough process of experiment, and this was the most unforgettable experience.

Yingtong Wang

My name is Yingtong Wang. I 'm a member in digital modeling group. My great interest in synthetic biology is one of the main reasons why I’m participating in iGEM. The great thing about synthetic biology is that we are not only examining and observing nature, but also in our lives. I am excited about the prospect of completing our own research project and hopefully contributing to the synthetic biology community.

Yuwen Feng

I am Yuwen Feng , a senior student in Guangdong Experimental High School. As a member in GDSYZX-United, I am the leader of the experimental group. I am interested in biology, especially in plants. So last year, I took part in the Biological Experiments Association, one of the academic associations in my school. I join this group in March. When I first heard about iGEM, I thought it very difficult. However, after a few months of preparation, I learn a lot about synthetic biology and I now believe that it is a meaningful experience.

Yikun Zhu

I am Yikun Zhu. IGEM is great! I take part in this competition because I have a passion for engineering new things and doing experiments. The process of engineering is full of fun: first you imagine what kind of thing you want to make, what’s the function of it, and then you use several basic parts to build it so it will turn out to be something you want. Synthetic biology gives me the chance to engineer interesting parts and I am so glad to see the part could work in our experiment! Moreover,iGEM encourages me to try new things, like modeling and designing the wiki. There’re always new things to learn in iGEM!

Haoyuan Yan

Hello! I'm Haoyuan Yan from Guangdong Experimental High School. Because of my love for Biology and ambition of obtaining more knowledge, Together with my friends, I joined a iGEM team called GDSYZX-United.In our team, I am in charge of presentation, and I also assist other members to finish many tasks.

Yifan Liaoyan

I signed up iGem due to my passion for computer science and biology. I love programming so much. Computer science allows me to engineer anything with the simple mechanics of “0” and “1”. While biology allows me to study the structure of all forms of life. Synthetic biology helps me to do both of it. It is really a cool thing.

Xiao Yao

My name is Xiao Yao, and I am a student from Guangdong Experimental High School. As a person found of biology, especially biological experiments, I decided to join in this high-leveled competition the moment the application form came to me. At first, I thought iGEM was only a match about synthetic biology. But then, with a deeper understanding about it, I learnt that iGEM was definitely not a knowledge quiz, but a competition focusing on the abilities of creative thinking and teamwork. And that’s why I began to love it much more than before. I believe the unforgettable experience of iGEM together with my teammates and our project will be a lifetime treasure in my memories. Also, as somebody who hopes to make some international friends, I look forward to attending the Giant Jamboree really, very much!

Zhigang Feng

My name is Zhigang Feng , majored in Biology. An idea, a team, a legendary tour. This is me in the eyes of the iGEM.

Before that, I'm not sure whether high school students know how to return a responsibility, iGEM for them is a piece of blank paper. A year from hiring, topic selection, experiment, modeling,and speech to complete for themselves, the depth of the scientific research experience is difficult to obtain elsewhere. In addition, iGEM also let me feel the team's strong, big to the project, wiki, speech of who will bear responsibility. Small to the campus propaganda, budgets. No one trust each other, the team cooperation tacit understanding is made. As their advicer, I would be glad to share what I know and they, and provide them with some of the ideas. I am very happy with high school students experience igem, they let me know what we can do many things, to find that textbooks of the real world.
