iGEM (international Genetically Engineered Machine) is a student’s competition within the new area of Synthetic Biology and has been created at the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in 2003. Meanwhile, the competition became an annual event, operated by an independent iGEM association in Boston. The business is i.) bearing a new, often adventurous idea for a synthetic biological approach, ii.) during summertime, testing the hypothesis by performing proper experiments, and iii.) in autumn, presenting the projects in Boston by talks or posters vieing with teams from all over the world.
