IGEM – IISER Bhopal

“Tackling real-world problem with the tools of synthetic biology”

iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) is an annual worldwide synthetic biology competition. The competition aims at summer-long multidisciplinary teamwork to design a project and build genetically engineered systems using standard biological parts called BioBricks. IICE supports iGEM-IISER Bhopal teams with mentorship and infrastructure facilities as student pre-startups.
