What is Synthetic Biology and why is it important?
iGEM - an integral part of Synthetic Biology
The first iGEM competition took place in 2004(?) with five(?) participating undergraduate research teams. The popularity of iGEM grew quickly. In 2006, xx teams from all over the world participated in the competition jamboree. In 2007, the number increased to xx. Within only a number of years, iGEM has established a structure and support… with foreseeable further expansion in the near future.)
Who are the MIT iGEM team?
- Undergraduate researchers who have demonstrated great enthusiasm and sound understanding of synthetic biology. The research team performs experiments on a full-time basis during the summer. In early autumn, the team prepares formal presentations, a poster and a seminar, for the competition jamboree, which takes place in early November.
- Graduate advisors, who are graduate students volunteering to build and guide the undergraduate research team. Graduate advisors recruit undergraduate researchers, fundraise, lead the brainstorming process for research project design and help supervise the undergraduate research team until the competition jamboree.
- Faculty advisors from multiple departments. They provide expertise on research projects to ensure a successful learning experience for both undergraduate and graduate members.
For more information on the current team members, please visit our web page.
