The Giant Jamboree

The Giant Jamboree will be the largest gathering of Synthetic Biologists worldwide! This year, everyone can participate, instead of having regional events where a percentage of teams advanced to the Championship, we will have one single event.

We are expecting around 3000 participants, so come join the fun as teams present their projects, show their posters and share the iGEM experience.

This event will be truly International and Inclusive. Teams from all around the world and from a multiple disciplines will have worked very hard all summer and will be ready to celebrate their efforts and achievements.

iGEM HQ also has reasons to celebrate. This year is our 10 year anniversary! Come join us in this very special date.
