Portal Information


The international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a global synthetic biology contest that originated at MIT. The goal of the program is to have undergraduates, under the guidance of faculty and graduate students, think critically about both community and global biological problems relating to synthetic biology techniques. It provides undergraduates with invaluable experience in experimental procedures that go beyond normal coursework, as well as help the students grow in their ability to formulate ideas, work in groups, and be effective presenters.
