Project Lever is rolling out a new blog feature! In addition to #ResearchSuperstars, we will be writing about the conferences where undergraduate students may exhibit their research. We are big fans not only of doing research but also showing it to the world. Get these poster sessions going! We'll call it #LeverConferences. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!


Today, we're featuring iGEM - The International Genetically Engineered Machine competition (iGEM) that is the premiere undergraduate Synthetic Biology competition in the nation. iGEM started in Cambridge, MA and is a spin-off from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The conference is basically for former LEGO devotees turned synthetic biologists. All students get kits of biological parts at the beginning of the summer from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Next, the students work with these kits to build biological systems and operate them within living cells. Started as part of the winter session at MIT (called Independent Activities Period) in 2003, iGEM has grown to an international competition that attracted 165 teams from around the world in 2011.


Late registration for iGEM 2013 is still open! Check out this link for more information, and get your team together until it's not too late!
