The International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (iGEM)

The International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition (iGEM) is the premiere Synthetic Biology competition and the largest Synthetic Biology conference in the world. Working at their own schools over the summer, participants use standard biological parts to design, build, and operate biological systems in living cells.

Software tools will play a critical role in the design and evaluation of biological systems. iGEM 2008 has a special track for software tools for synthetic biology and our team is planning to participate in this new track.

Our project is implement an application written entirely in Python which will be installed on a grid of servers. We thought about implementing a full functionality Mechanochemistry Simulator with the possibility to extend and add new features in the future. Our work is based on the research of peruvian scientist Carlos Bustamante []
