A team by Lo Wing Sum (EE), Pun Chun Wing (EE) and So Ka Yan (BME) won Gold Medal at iGEM.

iGEM stands for International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition, a high-profile competition in synthetic biology among undergraduates from different institutes worldwide. iGEM is held every year in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, United States. The goal of the competition is to build simple biological systems from standard, interchangeable parts and operate them in living cells. Teams are given about 6 months of time to build their system during the summer break and the autumn.
