Brightest minds in Synthetic Biology gather in Boston, MA at the 10th Annual iGEM Jamboree
iGEM will host the largest annual gathering of synthetic biologists worldwide on October 30 - November 3, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Giant Jamboree competition
iGEM, the International Genetically Engineered Machine competition, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by hosting the Giant Jamboree, the collegiate division’s culminating event. Working all summer long in multidisciplinary teams, university students worked to solve real-world challenges by designing, building, testing, and characterizing genetically engineered biological systems with standard, interchangeable parts called BioBricks from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts (http://parts.igem.org/
iGEM is not just a student competition but a place where the leading experts in synthetic biology gather. Through the iGEM competition, the iGEM Foundation promotes education, safety and security, policy and regulation, multidisciplinary teamwork, technology, community, and open sharing.
Join us on October 30-November 3rd and meet with today’s leaders in synthetic biology at the iGEM Giant Jamboree. This 5-day conference features team presentations and exhibition hall poster sessions on the latest synthetic biology research, as well as workshops, panel discussions, an award ceremony and much more!
MORE INFO: iGEM, the International Genetically Engineered Machine Competition is a non-profit organization that inspires future synthetic biologists by hosting high school and collegiate level competitions in synthetic biology and by maintaining the Registry of Standard Biological Parts.
