Congratulations to UVa's iGEM team for receiving a Gold Medal at the 2019 iGEM Competition, held October 31-Nov 2 at the Hynes...
What is Virginia iGEM?
We are a student-run research team and synthetic biology interest group. Every year, we select a new team from our pool of applicants; those applicants will participate in the International Genetic Engineering Machine competition through Spring semester, Summer and Fall. Team members work together to discover problems that can be solved using synthetic biology, design and engineering solutions to those problems, and implement functional prototypes of those solutions that will be presented during the iGEM Conference.
The Virginia iGEM Team consistently sees success at the international competition, which happens every Fall. This year, the conference is planned for Paris, France, and the team is working on developing a novel solution to inefficient biosynthesis. Check out our Current Team Page to read all about it!
