What is iGEM

An iGEM team consist of university students from different disciplines combining their skills to create a unique completely new project crossing boundaries both scientifically and personally.

Like in the real world, projects succeed when skills are combined. Previous years iGEM teams members came from physics, biotech, business, entrepreneurship, communication, medicine, philosophy, graphic design etc. Are you studying theology, math, languages, history, law or journalism? You are welcome!

In the competition, teams are evaluated not only on results from the lab, but also on their ability to work together, communicate the project, fundraise, project management, creativity, presentation etc. Months of intense work will climax at the Giant Jamboree at MIT in Boston in Oktober-November 2017 competing with teams from all over the world.

iGEM 2017 team InCell

Inspired by the fermenting research field surrounding interspecies and interdomain interactions our team has decided to pursue a study of endosymbiosis, its history, mechanisms, and future applications.

InCell is a strong international and interdisciplinary team with expertises ranging from Molecular Biomedicine to Communication and IT, including Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Food Science & Technology.
