Build a Lifeform contest -- winner goes to synthetic biology conference in HK

io9's Annalee Newitz sez, "io9 is sponsoring a 'build a lifeform' contest. Entrants will have to design a lifeform that can actually be built in a lab right now, and one winner will get an all-expenses-paid trip to the Synthetic Biology Conference in Hong Kong. We want to encourage mad science and synthetic biology! Judges include MIT's Drew Endy, UC Berkeley's Michael Eisen, and Spore game developer Jason Shankel. " Link (Thanks Annalee!)
