LCG-UNAM-Mexico Team

2008 LCG-UNAM-Mexico Team logo

The LCG-UNAM-Mexico team is made out of a group of 14 bizarre entities called students, 13 of them come from the Undergraduate program on Genomics (link on your right) at the city of Cuernavaca. Our last recruit, a student on Communication and Electronic Engineering, came a long way from Guadalajara in order to make our bacteria sing. We were advised by two lords of wisdom who emanate knowledge as they walk, thanks to their deep understanding of biological phenomena.

This is the first time that students like us join the other groups, from distant lands, that attempt to realize the most unconceivable and insane projects. We expect to find colleagues who share our insanity and passion for the emerging field of synthetic biology; people who has survived all the obstacles of scientific research and that is eager to come back the next year.
