IGEM Outreach:Synthetic Biology Word Clouds
As a continuation of our 2010 project, the 2011 UBC iGEM team collected asked hundreds of students for their definition of synthetic biology and produced this word cloud:

To help convey what iGEM and synthetic biology is to the community, our team has started an iGEM Dictionary on the outreach wiki. We will be organizing an activity at the Americas Regional Jamboree to fill up this dictionary with the help of all attending iGEM teams! So please keep an eye out for us and visit our poster!
