General Overview

  • Responsible for obtaining labspace and reagents/equipment required for the summer’s experiments, as well as running the lab throughout the summer. The committee must maintain an inventory of equipment and reagents. It is also in charge of ordering supplies and maintaining a detailed log of expenditures, which will be transferred to the finance committee to update the budget. To effectively operate the lab, the committee will work with graduate students to ensure the lab is adequately stocked, and is prepared for chemical and biohazard safety. The committee must also work to search for a more permanent lab and storage space for future iGEM teams.
