Welcome to the MIT team Wiki for iGEM 2008

  • iGEM is the international genetically engineered machines competition.
  • The objective of the competition is to design and build an engineered biological system using DNA.
  • To see examples of the amazing possibilities of iGEM, check out last years iGEM page
  • Read our promotional brochure to learn about synthetic biology at MIT (front and back).
  • iGEM at MIT is possible because of outside support, contact Tom Knight (tk [at] mit.edu) to help out!
