The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization that dedicates its efforts to the advancement of synthetic biology through the development of a collaborative open community.

The annual global iGEM Competition trains students of all ages and backgrounds in the power of science while paired with social responsibility. Though based on competitive projects, the iGEM Network doubles as an experiential learning opportunity that exposes students to multiple career paths including science communication, entrepreneurship, science policy, and social impact, in addition to cutting edge synthetic biology techniques.

Because of the importance we place on training students and mentors, we present the iGEM Mentors Network, an online community of experts created by iGEMers for iGEMers.
