Team:SJTU-BioX-Shanghai/Human Parctice


Human Practice

This year, our main focus about human practice is communication. We truly believe that it is the key to bringing dynamic and new ideas to our iGEM community. And it is our job to observe others’ opinions as well as to give others advice. Therefore, this is not only our human practice presentation but also proof for the friendship between our team and all the groups or individuals below.
