New Track: Measurement

The foundation of all engineering disciplines is built on the ability to repeatedly measure precise properties of your system. Creation of new units of measurement can lead to great advancements in human progress. One such example is creation of the Ohm measure of electrical resistance leading to construction of the first successful transatlantic communications cable.

What can you measure precisely and with high repeatability in synthetic biology? What new units can you create that the field will use to make the next leap in human progress? What unit will you be known for that will still be in use in a 100 years?

If you’re interested in these problems, check out the Measurement New Track. We have an inter-lab study that all teams can participate in! The parts are in the 2014 Distribution! If you’re passionate about building new tools and want to get involved, check out our Measurement New Track page!

New Track: Policy & Practices

Are you interested in how synbio and iGEM will be regulated? What are the rules in your country regarding the release of engineered organisms into the wild? Do you know if you can test your awesome iGEM project in the field legally?

We’re faced with many challenging issues in getting synthetic biology acknowledged, understood and not feared by regulators. We need iGEM teams who are going to tackle the hard questions and approach and inform their legislators, law makers and policy makers about synbio.

If you’re passionate about these issues and want to get involved, check out our Policy and Practices New Track page! Human Practices has always been a core component of iGEM teams, but now you can choose P&P as your main project!

New Track: Microfluidics

Already registered for iGEM? Not sure what to work on yet? Looking for something cool to do over the summer? Interested in Microfluidics?

Check out our New 2014 Microfluidics track! We’re having a workshop at iGEM HQ where you get to build your own 8 channel controller and some chips. You’ll get to go home with the kit and any extra chips you can make. We’ll teach you everything you need to build, test and run the kit.

There will be a fee to attend the workshop, but you’ll go home with your own 8 channel controller!Check out the New Track page here:Microfluidics
