project wouldn’t proceed smoothly without the contribution of any member of the
team.Team Leader: Our team came into existence under the leadership of
Xinyuan Qiu in December 2015. He observed our characteristics carefully and
exerted our greatest potential. Our team worked efficiently due to his
Experiment: Xinyuan Qiu, Chushu Zhu, Yue Wang and Yishi Lu
completed most of the experiments.
Wiki: Everyone shared his or her brilliant ideas about the style of
wiki. Jiaxin Ma worked on the visual appearance of it. Xinyuan Qiu was
responsible for web copy writing.
Poster: Chushu Zhu was engaged in composing the texts in our
Jiaxin Ma and Xinyuan Qiu devoted themselves to the layout and the art design of
Presentation: Xinyuan Qiu, Jiaxin Ma and Chushu Zhu will give the
presentations during the competition, they have rehearsed several times and all
of us gathered and discussed to improve it.
Team Shirt: Yufei Xu designed our team shirt.
Modeling: Chushu Zhu and Xinyuan Qiu were in charge of the
Human practice: Dongyu Fan and Jiaxin Ma were in charge of HP.
Yifan Zhang and Qijie Xu designed an interesting game
based on our project. Yue Wang popularized some basic knowledge of cancer in the
community together with Xi Cheng. Besides, they went to the Second Xiangya
Hospital of Central South University to interview Dr. Wenjin Li and Dr. Tao Hou
about cancer. Jiaxin Ma and Huifang Wang designed a questionnaire to know the
public awareness of early detection of cancer. Yishi Lu organized a great debate
on ethical issues about cancer. Ruixuan Cheng was in charge of “LAB OPEN DAY”.
Jiaxin Ma and Xi Cheng did a survey about the cost of the early cancer detection
product in the market and estimated the expected cost of our product.
would like to express our deepest gratitude towards every person and institution
that have helped us.General Support: The project was supported by the Department of
and Biology of College of Science, National University of Defense Technology.
Project support and advice: This project was come up with due to a
brainstorming and then we discussed the details about it in a group. We designed
the experiments under the help of our primary PI Dr. Lvyun Zhu. Besides, Dr.
Lvyun Zhu helped us to be familiar with the experimental operations. Our
secondary PI Prof. Lingyun Zhu provided us a dedicated laboratory, equipments
and great advises to ensure the smooth development of our project, and helped us
to contact other colleges and institutes for collaboration. Our instructor
Xiaomin Wu offered us the guidelines about conventional experimental techniques.
Dr. Zonghuang Ye from the Department of Chemistry and Biology introduced some
relevant background knowledge to us. Mr. Zhe Liu and
Prof. Dongyi Zhang offered us some important suggestions about the project.
Fundraising help and advice: We got experimental funding support
PIs Prof. Lingyun Zhu and Dr. Lvyun Zhu and travel funding support from College
of Science of NUDT. Our advisor Lu Min was in charge of expenses management.
Lab support: Department of Chemistry
and Biology of College of Science provided a biology experimental platform for
Difficult technique support: Our lab was newly established and is
short of the equipment which is able to do the nucleotide sequence screening. In
light of this, we bought the sequencing service from InvitrogenTM .
Our devices and systems of parts was all verified there. Most of our regents
such as enzyme were bought from TaKaRaTM and some other bio-tech
companies. IDT provided us with the prime synthesize service. Genscript helped
to forward our part samples shipments to iGEM HQ.
Project adviser support: Our advisor Long Liu provided us solutions
we face difficulties in the process of proceeding the project.
Experiment support: Dr. Wenjin Li and Dr. Tao Hou from the Second
Xiangya Hospital of Central South University and Dr. De-an Tan from the Hospital
of NUDT were concerned about our
experimental work and helped us to get some serum samples from healthy
and patients. We are eager to express our sincere thanks to all the volunteers
(especially the patients) for their selfless voluntary devotion.
We'd also like to appreciate Dr. Haoqian Zhang and Mr. Yihao Zhang from iGEM2015
team Peking for their generous support by providing timely suggestions on
protein expression and purification.
Human Practices support: Dr. Wenjin Li and Dr. Tao Hou from the
Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, were very kindly to answer our
question about cancer.
Wiki support: Our instructors Qijun Liu provided us solutions when
face difficulties in the process of wiki production.
Model support: Our advisor Shaoliang Peng from the Supercomputer
Center in NUDT, helped us optimize simulation algorithm and ran parallel program
on Tianhe. Yuling Yang and Deyao Yu, our schoolmates from College of Science,
provived us guidelines about programming and model optimization.
