Hello there! I am glad you found it to my page. This is me, Sylke Hoehnel (noooo... not the big grey one with the trunk!!!). The picture was recently taken during my holiday in South Africa in the Elephant Sanctuary in Hazyview (near the Kruger National Park).
I was born in Chemnitz (former Karl-Marx-Stadt) in Germany, have lived in England for 4 years while i was still "young" :-) and am now a BSc Biotechnology student at ETH Zurich/ Switzerland. I have found iGEM to be a great opportunity to be part of a team creating something fun and interesting in the field of Synthetic Biology. Have a look at our team page and find out what our "educatETH E.coli" can do!
As you can see, apart from studying, I love traveling around the world, so I'll look forward to seeing you at the Jamboree in Boston soon :-)
