10 years IGEM

10Y iGEM
Celebrating 10 years
150 participants
15 awards

Join the conference and workshop
“Charting future paths of open synthetic biology” !

5-6-7 October 2017

iGEM = International Genetically Engineered Machine competition
is a worldwide synthetic biology competition that was initially aimed at undergraduate university students, but has since expanded to include divisions for high school students, entrepreneurs, and community laboratories, as well as ‘overgraduates’.

YES ! It’s been 10 years now that, each year, CRI’s students participate in the competition
as Paris Bettencourt iGEM team.
CRI wants this anniversary to be celebrated !
