    About the iGEM Competition

    iGEM, the International Genetically Engineered Machine competition, calls on students the world over to engage in novel synthetic biology projects to design and create biological systems, and to demonstrate their function in living cells. This is accomplished with a collection of biological parts, which can be found in the Registry of Standard Biological Parts, a collection curated by iGEM. Based on the strength of the design, ingenuity of the execution, and value of the data generated, projects are ranked, and teams advance to the world championship. Currently, iGEM is open to teams from the high school level to the post-graduate “entrepreneur” level.
