iGEM Summer Program

iGEM logo

iGEM (international Genetically Engineered Machine) Competition - Are you interested in using biology to build new systems? The international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a summer program that engages students in synthetic biology research. Each summer, a team of six to ten Harvard undergraduates collaborates on a novel research project of their own design, with the aim of creating biological systems that perform new functions. iGEM team members typically come from a variety of scientific backgrounds, ranging from molecular biology to engineering. Each November, iGEM teams from around the world gather to share their projects and ideas.

Note: iGEM will run for ten weeks during summer 2011. Participants receive a $4500 stipend. Visit the main iGEM website and/or the Harvard 2010 official wiki for more information.
