iGEM is a synthetic biology competition in which groups of students from around the world build biological devices from standardized genetic parts. Students choose their own projects, perform experiments, and travel to regional and international competitions to present their results.

This competition a rare opportunity to take part in team-based, student-driven research, and allows undergraduates to engage with the growing synthetic biology community. CIDAR has been involved in iGEM since 2011.

Many of CIDAR's iGEM efforts are part of STEM Pathways  and the NSF Living Computing Project.  Please click on the icons below for more.
