iGEM is an international competition in synthetic biology. Student teams from around the world undertake 10-week summer research projects. In the Autumn, they compete in a world-wide competition in Boston, MA, USA.

Synthetic biology is an exciting new field of research, bridging the biological and the physical and computational sciences. Standard biological parts, known as ‘biobricks’, are used to create circuits within living cells.
