Wiki of the last year: 2019 Wiki
Synthetic biology is the newest development in the field of biology and promises solutions to some of the most challenging problems of our time. This year, 16 students from Bielefeld University from different fields of study will participate in the “internatonal Genetically Engineered Machine” (iGEM) competition. iGEM is a nonprofit competition for students from all around the world. It is the most renowned competition in the field of synthetic biology and unique in its form. Every year around 300 teams from all around the world participate in the iGEM competition with their own projects and present their results in Boston in front of an international jury. Projects range from solutions for the climate change to biological solutions for IT problems to arts projects.
