The first Estonian team is participating the iGEM competition in Boston

ERA Chair in Synthetic Biology in collaboration with Loog lab from TUIT has initiated the first Estonian team to participate the world largest Synthetic Biology competition iGEM.

The iGEM competition is an annual, worldwide, synthetic biology event aimed at undergraduate university students, as well as high school and graduate students. Multidisciplinary teams work all summer long to build genetically engineered systems using standard biological parts called BioBricks. iGEM teams work inside and outside the lab, creating sophisticated projects that strive to create a positive contribution to their communities and the world.
