iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) is an international synthetic biology competition hosted by the eponymous iGEM foundation. This competition encourages students to push the boundaries of synthetic biology by using it to tackle complex problems of local and global scale. Following established engineering principles, hundreds of multidisciplinary teams build their own projects from the ground up and compete for a multitude of prizes in different focus areas. The pinnacle of this competition is reached every fall, when all of the teams come together to present their work.
