The mediation of information on synthetic biology to the general public is an important criterion for successful participation in iGEM. That's why we have worked a lot with blogs, newspapers, radio and television stations in the past. Detailed information about the public appearances of the previous iGEM teams from Bielefeld can be found on the pages of these teams. If you are interested in the project of the iGEM team Bielefeld-CeBiTec 2019 or have questions about one of the former projects, please send an email to info[at]igem-bielefeld.de.
We are currently in close contact with the press office of Bielefeld University to keep the public regularly informed about the progress of our work. We plan to have two or three press releases published in the future.
