1. Are you currently or have you ever been a member of an iGEM team?

2. Which iGEM team(s) and for how many years?

3. How important is the following information when looking for a part in the registry?

  Completely Useless Not Important Somewhat Important Very Important Absolutely Necessary
Where the part came from

Proof of functionality
Easy to read overview
Detailed technical description
Which teams have used the part

6. How would you rate the iGEM registry as a whole?

7. How often do you find parts that you're interested in, but have little to no characterization data?

8. Would you be in favor of a standardized characterization protocol for iGEM teams in which a team must meet minimum requirements to release a part?

9. If a standardized characterization protocol was established, would you or your team be interested in collaborating with Purdue iGEM to help review it?

10. If the answer to the above question was "Yes", please leave a contact email so that we may contact you for collaboration.
