The OLS 2014 iGEM Team would like to thank the following people/groups for their assistance in starting up a brand new Canmore team:

- Calgary Mentors/Technical Advisors: Mr. David Lloyd, Dr. Magdalena Pop, Mr. Iain George (we are especially grateful for their patience in teaching us – we really knew nothing about synthetic biology and how any of the equipment was supposed to work ie. workshops, VROC, emails, …)

- Kitwa Ng at iGEM headquarters – especially for rushing us our parts and helping with our “plasmid resistance debacle”

- Sarah Lee and Jennifer Hill from Alberta Innovates and Geekstarter

- Sacred Heart Parish Church for ethics contributions (Deacon West).


- Canmore Mayor John Borrowman and Town Councillors for hearing our presentation and supporting us, encouraging us to apply for a project grant next year

- Canmore Sweat Shop for rushing the order for our T-Shirts

- John Paul II Collegiate for lending us the autoclave and Holy Trinity Academy for lending us a centrifuge
